A Holiday Concert will be held on Saturday, December 14, at 7:00 PM. Heather Connolly and Pastor Ellen, along with some friends, will be presenting this concert at St. Ansgar Lutheran Church to benefit the Portland Community Free Clinic.
The Portland Community Free Clinic provides much needed healthcare to low income workers throughout the greater Portland area. Serving the working poor, the Clinic cares for approximately 600 patients in 1600 encounters per year, providing health services to people who would not otherwise be able to receive sufficient healthcare. High quality care is provided by 100 plus volunteer physicians and nurses.
Over the past 10 months Pastor Ellen and other volunteers, have been working to create an organization that will help provide sustainable and ongoing funding for the work of the Clinic. The Friends of the Portland Community Free Clinic became an incorporated organization this past summer. Proceeds from the Holiday Concert on December 14 will be used to provide health care for many.
