Do you want to volunteer with a dynamic group of women? Would you like to introduce others to the Neighborhood Health Clinic? Does the Clinic’s mission (healthcare for low income, working but uninsured Collier County adults) resonate with you?
Over the past several months a group of dedicated women have been organizing “The Guild for the Neighborhood Health Clinic.” The Guild’s mission is to serve as Clinic ambassadors and encourage friends and neighbors to learn about and be involved in the services and good work the Clinic does. Additionally, members will support the Clinic through volunteering, attending Clinic and Guild programs, and helping raise funds to further the life-saving work done here.
Founding members of the Guild include Jane Scholtz (president), Joy Dillon (membership chair), Lydia Smith, Susan Jones, Penny Lauer, Pilar Montes, Marilyn Way, Bonnie Yarrington, Chris Zantop and Nancy Lascheid. The Neighborhood Health Clinic holds a special place in the hearts of each Guild member, many of whom have been volunteering in various ways and donating to the Clinic for years.
Guild member are expected to:
- Attend Guild meetings during the “season”
- Take a tour of the Neighborhood Health Clinic
- Attend the Guild’s annual fundraiser
- Attend Clinic’s annual fundraiser – optional
- Serve on one Guild Committee
- Become involved with the Clinic through volunteering and/or fundraising
- Pay $150 annual dues
The founding members are excited about the possibilities this new group offers the Neighborhood Health Clinic. A coffee reception and meeting to welcome new members will be held Wednesday, February 22 at 9:30 am. For more information, please call Joy Dillon, Guild Membership Chair, at 239-403-7363 or email her firstname.lastname@example.org.
