Reflecting on the past year, 2018 was a year of transition! Thanks to the Community Foundation of the Lowcountry, who provided us with the down payment and a mortgage through Palmetto State Bank, we moved into our very own building on August 31st. Truly, the organization has been blessed with generous benefactors that persist in their support and kindness.
Our vision is: “No one in our community will go without access to quality healthcare.” In pursuit of that goal, we continue to build an organization that now has 15 volunteer medical providers, 20 volunteer nurses and 52 volunteer administrative staff, which in 2018 delivered medical services valued at almost $2.4 million.
Join us for an exciting, fun filled afternoon at beautiful Belfair Plantation where you can see the latest Spring fashions from Cocoon, Eggs ‘N’ Tricities, Spartina and Worth NY, have a wonderful meal, win fabulous prizes and help support Greater Bluffton Jasper Volunteers in Medicine.
Local photographer Jackie Friel donated some of her work to adorn blank notecards that Bluffton Jasper Volunteers in Medicine is selling at local farmers markets. You can purchase the boxes online below and then pick them up at the Burnt Church Road clinic. Or give Pam Toney a call at 843-706-7090.
As we reflect on the past year we have many accomplishments to be proud of; the opening of our Jasper County clinic, increased partnerships with community healthcare providers, vision screenings and dental programs. While we are proud of these accomplishments we have also seen the need for our services to grow.
Community support is vital in enabling us to care for those who cannot afford healthcare coverage. The medical services that our patients receive are made possible by a staff of compassionate medical and nonmedical volunteers who give tirelessly to ensure that each patient is treated with care and respect.
Neighbors like you have always responded to the needs of its most vulnerable population. This year your donation is even more important as many in our community have suffered great hardships as a result of Hurricane Matthew. Making your tax-deductible donation to the Bluffton Jasper County Volunteers in Medicine ensures the availability of quality healthcare to those less fortunate and it allows us to continue to carry out our mission.
