In this time of uncertainty, there’s a fundamental truth that gives us hope – that together we can do extraordinary things. Over the past few weeks and months, the entire world has been coming together to stand up, help out, give back, and heal. Generosity has been helping the entire world get through this global pandemic. Together.
On May 5, 2020, the National Association of Free and Charitable Clinics (NAFC) is participating in #GivingTuesdayNow, a global day of unity and giving.
Across the United States, Free and Charitable Clinics and Pharmacies are on the frontlines helping their communities respond to the COVID-19 pandemic. They are adapting their normal business to ensure that their patients and communities are cared for and not left behind.
During this difficult time, the NAFC is providing support through funding, access to donated products including PPEs and medications, access to discounted services like telehealth and telemedicine programs and more.
By joining the #GivingTuesdayNow movement, you’re proving that in times of uncertainty, generosity can bring the whole world together.
Here is how you can participate:
