WAKE FOREST — Hope Lutheran Church, 3525 Rogers Road, will host a free medical clinic, Touched by Hope, Nov. 7, 8 a.m.-1 p.m.
The clinic offers free medical and dental screenings, a warm meal, clothing, food pantry, children’s books, haircuts and manicures. All services are provided for anyone in the community, free of charge, no appointment necessary.
In 2014, more than 300 volunteers and medical professionals donated their time and talents by assisting 375 guests. “It has been a difficult year for my family with only one unsteady income. It is comforting to know that people do care in the community,” said one attendee, “The members of the church were very warm and welcoming at the tables and the meals were delicious.”
Touched by Hope clinic is made possible by dedicated volunteers who spend a great deal of time planning, preparing and praying for a successful event.
Pastor Lew Upchurch believes the success is due to the rewards received by both volunteers and guests. He said, “Touched by Hope is simply one real and tangible way we can follow Christ’s command to love our neighbors.”
