Free and Charitable Clinics and Charitable Pharmacies rely on volunteers to be able to provide needed healthcare to medically underserved people in their communities.

The spirit of volunteerism and giving back is a truly rewarding experience, one that is exemplified in clinics throughout the country.

Annually, over 200,000 volunteers help approximately 2 million people through 6 million patient visits receive healthcare at America’s 1,400 Free and Charitable Clinics and Pharmacies. Volunteers with a wide variety of skills and backgrounds are needed and welcomed – from non-medical backgrounds to help with administrative and clerical tasks to licensed healthcare professionals.
