Several members of the Council of Catholic Women of St. Francis of Assisi Parish in Fairfield Glade traveled to Crab Orchard on June 10 to present a check to the St. Mary’s Legacy Clinic to further its work.
This check was made possible from proceeds of the CCW’s rummage sale held annually in the spring. The mobile medical clinic visits Crab Orchard Care Center in Cumberland County twice a month. The Diocese of Knoxville and the St. Mary’s Legacy Foundation of East Tennessee are committed to providing care for the medically underserved in East Tennessee.
The 40-foot mobile clinic is staffed by Sister Mariana Koonce, RSM, MD, other physicians, nurses and volunteers, many from St. Francis of Assisi parish.
CCW members at the check presentation included Pam Brophy, Janice Cahill, Carol Stenger, Judy Johnson, Patty Johnson, RN, and Gloria Tartaglia, RN.
