St. Petersburg Free Clinic offers help and hope to neighbors in need throughout the community. The agency offers a wide range of programs to help people who are struggling with basic needs including hunger, medical, dental, housing, transportation, clothing, utilities and referrals.
As a volunteer, it is shocking and sad to see hundreds of people coming in each week for something as simple as a few bags of groceries yet it is a relief to know they have a place like St. Petersburg Free Clinic to go to get assistance.

Each year, thousands of people in our community come to St. Petersburg Free Clinic for assistance with basic needs including food, shelter, heath care, referrals and other basic services. As a weekly volunteer, I see people from all walks of life receive a helping hand from one of the Clinic's programs when they have no where else to turn. One gentleman in his nineties wrote, " Thank you for helping with my electric bill. I have terminal cancer and just want to stay warm. Your kindness and financial support with help me live out my last days in comfort." This is just one example of how a Clinic service can make life more bearable for a neighbor in need. And as a donor, I appreciate that donations are well spent to ensure that 90 cents of every dollar donated goes directly to client programs and services.

I am proud to volunteer my time with such a great organization! The St Pete Free Clinic makes a big impact within our community providing food, health care and shelter to those in need. I work in the We Help food pantry which runs on volunteers and donations. We Help distributed over 2.5 million pounds of food last year. This is the most EFFICIENT organization that truly utilizes every resource and stretches donations to the fullest in order to help as many people as possible. Please consider donating your time, money or resources to help the needy in Pinellas County.

I have been a volunteer for the St. Petersburg Free Clinic for over 8 years, doing intake for the Medical Clinic. I am constantly impressed by the quality of care given to our patients both by paid staff members and by the volunteer doctors and nurses. Each patient is treated with concern and compassion and I believe every one feels better emotionally as well as physically when they leave the clinic. Many times, after receiving medical care, a person will get food or assistance from "We Help" which shares a waiting room. It is one stop shopping which is so necessary when a bus ride was necessary to get there. My church collects food each week and I am able to deliver this to the Food Bank when I report to my "job" each week. I always feel that our donation is appreciated. So many recipients have told me that they are so thankful for the Free Clinic. Without it, they don't know where they would go for help during their hard times. I am proud to be associated with such a fine organization.
