Here’s a way to help out during the holidays!

The Athens Nurses Clinic is honored to be one of the 30 nonprofits organizations represented at the Athens Area Benevolence Market on Dec.7, 2014 from 12 p.m. – 2:30 p.m. At the market, visitors can give a “symbolic gift” which is a donation that will assist the clinic in their every day operations. Three options for donations are available at the clinic:

- Personal care kit: shampoo, soap, razor, shaving cream, toothbrush, toothpaste, lotion, socks

for $5

- Lab pack: quarterly basic lab tests to help control a patient’s medical condition

for $15

 - Operating costs for 1 square foot of the Clinic for one year

for $125

In addition, donations of any amount will be accepted after the market. Please visit http://www.firstpresathens.org/benevolencemarket for more information about the event.

OH NO – WE ARE RUNNING LOW ON HYGIENE KITS

In addition to providing quality healthcare, one of the Clinic’s priorities is making sure our patients have the supplies they need to maintain good hygiene. We usually create hygiene kits ourselves, or other organizations donate hygiene kits to us.

Items included in hygiene kits are:

  • Washcloths
  • Soap
  • Toothbrush
  • Toothpaste
  • Socks
  • Deodorant
  • Shampoo
  • Razors
  • Lotion

With the fall and winter rolling in, it is very important that we distribute hygiene kits to as many patients as possible. While we work to continue putting hygiene kits together, we would love your help in adding to the numbers.

If you are interested in donating or creating hygiene kits for us, please contact Melanie Burden at volunteers@athensnursesclinic.org.
