Christ Clinic- Cheers to Volunteers!

Through out 2010 Compassion Katy is going to recognize some of the dedicated volunteers in the Katy area.

This month, we want to applaud Allie Hemming.  Allie is a volunteer with Christ Clinic, she gives her time and talents as a translator for the clinic on Thursday nights when the clinic is open late to see patients.  This past December, she also took time out to design and hand make several blankets to give to some of the patients.  She is pictured above with Christ Clinic patient Virginia Estrada who was a lucky recipient of one of the lovely blankets.

If you would like to get involved with volunteering at Christ Clinic, they have several opportunities available.   Find out more by clicking here or by contacting Carolyn Works, Clinic Manager at Christ Clinic- (281)391-0190.  www.ChristClinicKaty.org
