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.
