I am a volunteer at the peoples health clinic in Park City, Utah. Every time I am there, I feel privileged to be a part of this organization. They do so much for the locals who are unable to get health insurance. They provide health care needs of women, men and children. All the staff give endlessly to the clinic with love & respect. I can't say enough great things about PHC. I urge everyone to learn more about PHC and give them your support.

When I was a little girl in Louisiana, my mother showed me that those who had more had to take care of those who had less. One day we were downtown when she saw a man who obviously didn't have enough to eat. She stooped over to talk to him, then went into the nearby diner, and came back to the car. I asked "Mama, what did you say to that man? Why did you go to the restaurant?"She fixed her cat-eyed glasses on me and said, "That man told me he was hungry. So I told him I would give the owner of the diner $20 and he could go there until it was all gone." I know that she would like what the Clinic does for people.

In 2008 I was looking to volunteer some of my time to a community based organization that focused on caring for fellow community members. I was told about the PHC and after my consistent pestering of the people involved, I was finally asked to participate as a member of one of the PHC’s various committees. After being involved with the PHC for a number of months I realized what an honor it was to be involved with an organization like the PHC. I began to see the mission of the clinic clearly and realized it was closely related to many things that are very important to me personally, good health, caring for others, keeping families safe, and the making of a better community. I am so grateful to be involved with an organization that truly cares about people. I am honored to be on the board of the PHC and see that in tough times, our mission is even more critical to our community, and that the community is stepping up to help each other.

There are many places I could practice my phlebotomy skills, but here I help people who really need it. It's often through lab tests that people learn why they have been feeling bad, and can receive the care to feel better again.

I love being in the lab when the Clinic is packed. In between drawing blood I get pulled in to interpret for the doctors. The good days are the busiest days, so there are lots of good days at PHC.

I am a legal american living in PC . It's very expensive, and I can't afford rent much less insurance. I am a mature single seasonal worker I am very grateful to you for donating your your time, financial assistance and for helping me to have hope.......that maybe things are going to be alright. When you are sick and you have no insurance, and no money, there are not alot of choices. But through the Peoples clinic, I am able to seek the help that I need and not feel ashamed that i can't afford it. Thank you all for everything I really appreciate it! L.R.
