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.
