iGiveCatholic on Giving Tuesday

We are proud to announce that this year on Giving Tuesday, November 28th, we will be participating in the iGiveCatholic giving campaign.  This allows supporters to go online and make a donation to support their favorite Catholic ministry, school, or parish.  We want YOU to help us spread the word! Please notify any friends and/or family out of state that would like to make a contribution to support the wonderful work the clinic does for uninsured patients in East Tennessee.  There are several other participants raising money within the Diocese of Knoxville, and we would like to reach beyond our area to include supporters form all across the country.  We have set a goal to raise $10,000 to help cover the costs of one year of our newest clinic site in Gatlinburg.  As many people know, this area was devastated by fires 10 months ago, and people there continue to be in need. Help us raise the money needed to continue traveling to Gatlinburg each month and offering free health care to the uninsured in this area.  The Diocese of Knoxville has funded about half the needed money for the first year, and we are relying on others in and outside of our community to help bring us all the way to our goal.  Go online to www.igivecatholic.org to learn more. We will continue to update you as the giving day inches closer. As always, thank you for your support.
