CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (WDEF)- A group of volunteers enjoyed a free lunch today for all their hard work at a local free clinic.
Volunteers in medicine near the East gate Library for a luncheon sponsored by Cabot Creamery and their mobile gratitude grille.
Organizers say they go above and beyond their patients and they were long overdue for a day to just kick back and enjoy a good meal.
Ashley Evans says, “We couldn’t do this without them. We do about $8 million of care that’s completely free to our people. The only way we can do that is all of these people behind me come together, they give of themselves.”
Volunteers in medicine have provided more than 8 million dollars of medical care for the community at NO cost to the patients.
Cabot Creamery travels to different cities because they believe it is important to honor people who work to make their communities a better place to live.
Volunteers in Medicine have been open since May of 2005 and provides primary and preventative health care for people who have no access or public or private insurance.
