April is National Volunteer Month
Across the United States, during the month of April, Americans will be honored for giving their time to help others by volunteering. April also encompasses National Volunteer Week, April 19-25, which began in 1974, when President Richard Nixon signed an executive order establishing the week as an annual celebration of volunteering. Every President since then has signed a proclamation promoting National Volunteer Week. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, more than 64 million people volunteer annually.
At the Neighborhood Health Clinic we have more than 700 volunteers. Let’s take this time to celebrate National Volunteer Month and to recognize our outstanding volunteers whose dedication over the past 14 years has provided over $14,237,135 in value of donated services.
Thanks to the generosity of our volunteers, we will honor their request to do something different… Read more…

Neighbors Turn Out for the 10th Annual Block Party!
Story by Count Darling, Clinic Volunteer
Over 350 Neapolitans attended the 10th Annual Neighborhood Health Clinic fund raising party Saturday evening at the Naples Beach Club. One guest when asked what impressed him most answered, “The Excitement … from the moment we arrived! We were greeted by many old friends and introduced to many new ones as well.”
Excitement is a very fitting way to describe this gala affair featuring the music of the popular duo Cahlua and Cream and NBC-2 News Anchor Kellie Burns as the emcee. Dr. George Ferguson, Board Chair-Elect, was the Clinic host, welcoming guests and thanking them for their faithful support.
Ferguson recalled the first night of the Clinic on April 12, 1999, when eight patients were treated. As for the future, there are healthcare reforms at every level… Read more…
