It’s no accident that Mission of Mercy staff is always thanking our legions of volunteers. They’re the ones who provide the experienced and Loving medical and dental care, along with the administrative support that keeps our mobile medical clinic serving at six clinic sites in Maryland and southern Pennsylvania.
Without their skills and dedication, we would not have been able to serve the more than 28,000 patients who have visited our clinic since 1994! Equally important are the volunteers who serve on committees, organizing critical fund-raising events, such as our gala (see the Bubble Ball feature on the back), our Frederick and Gettysburg golf tournaments and our Mercy in the Morning Breakfast.
Some of those volunteers also serve another essential role for Mission of Mercy – as members of our Leadership Council.
A Passionate Voice in the Communities We Serve
Members of the Leadership Council are community leaders who are passionate about our mission. They’ve attended clinic tours, seen us in action, and understand the importance of our life-saving work.
As a regional program, we have the challenge – and opportunity – to serve many different types of communities spread throughout Maryland and southern Pennsylvania.
We need committed leaders who live and work in each community, and can bring their voice and leadership to support and expand our programs. Members of our Leadership Council play a critical role in connecting Mission of Mercy to the communities we serve, and the many communities in the region to Mission of Mercy.
As a member of the Leadership Council, you are welcome to invite friends and family members to attend a clinic tour as our guests, meet volunteers, and hear stories of healing, hope and inspiration.
Leadership Council members also serve on various committees, and share with others by inviting guests to our inspirational Mercy in the Morning breakfast held in May.
Finally, Leadership Council can be a stepping stone to serving on Mission of Mercy’s prestigious National Board of Directors. The National Board oversees Mission of Mercy’s work in Maryland/ Pennsylvania, Texas and Arizona.
If you’re interested in joining our Leadership Council, please contact me at 301-682-5683.
