Each year, the Museum District Woman’s Club adopts a charity for the holidays. This year’s charity is the Fan Free Clinic (FFC).
Established in 1968, the Fan Free Clinic’s mission was to provide quality health services, especially to those least served, in a compassionate and non-judgmental environment.
In addition to providing medical services and mental health counseling, they run a food pantry and a lending library that includes children and adult books.
At the December MDWC meeting, we had a very special guest speaker, Heather Turbyne-Pollard, Director of Resources & Philanthropy at the FFC. Heather outlined the clinic’s mission statement, showing how it has helped, and continues to help, those in need in our community.
The MDWC donated $200 and many members brought food and books to supplement the food pantry and lending library. Donations are accepted year-round. If you would like to make a donation or volunteer, you can visit the FFC website at www.fanfreeclinic.org.
