Hilton Head Island, SC. August 26, 2020 – 2020 VIM Virtual Gala
Now is the time to support our island community. It is a critical time to keep our working community healthy and able to work. The 2020 Circle of Caring Virtual Gala aims to do just that.
Our patients have been on the front lines in hospitality, food & beverage, healthcare, and beyond throughout the pandemic, exposing themselves and their families to keep our island running throughout a record-breaking summer. And with that, the need for free and accessible care is greater than ever. The spike in unemployment, furloughs, and lost wages has hit our VIM community the hardest. Already economically disadvantaged, our patients often live paycheck to paycheck and struggle to provide medical support for their families. "The clinic has made a tremendous difference to me. Without it I don't know what I would do." stated Vernie Singleton, VIM patient and former volunteer. Volunteers in Medicine has an indispensable role to play in keeping our working community healthy.
Now is the time to give. The Volunteers in Medicine Circle of Caring Virtual Gala is happening November 2nd through the 30th. With your donation, enjoy an exclusive Virtual Deas Guyz concert performed at the Jazz Corner, played in the safety and comfort of your own home. Show your support for those who support our island, donate to Volunteers in Medicine.
Help us, help them.
