EOPCC has brought Healthcare Close to Homessible,
EOPCC had to take out three loans. Amazing community support has helped
us pay off one loan. Will you help us work on the other two by buying a
commemorative brick or making a donation?
Your engraved brick will be placed in a prominent location in the new
clinic where all the community will see it. For $50, $100, or $150, you
can buy a brick to be engraved with an inscription of your choice. This
is a wonderful opportunity to honor a loved one by having their name
engraved or show the community that you support EOPCC engraving
your name or your family’s names on a brick.
To buy a brick, please download this form and return it to the office. Thanks so much in advance for your support!
Also, please visit our fundraising page called "Naming Opportunities" for an additional way to show your support and have your name become a permanent part of our facility.
A New Auxiliary Board for EOPCC
As all who have volunteered at EOPCC know, the work to be done is overwhelming. We are committed to the dream and know there are others who want to help, but are as yet untapped. We are forming an Auxiliary Board that would meet at least 4 times a year. We would plan, scheme, dream and mostly roll up our sleeves and work toward making EOPCC more stable through fundraising projects. We would volunteer and recruit volunteers for projects that need doing to make the EOPCC program better and more responsive to community needs. Also, we would work on some projects that handle some of the nitty gritty needs of EOPCC. If you would like to be on the EOPCC team, please call Dr. Bonnie Portier, D.O. at EOPCC: 301-447-3310. Friends of EOPCC, we hope you want to be part of this team; we will be calling you soon.
We need an outside accountant who would do a free or discounted audit or financial review for EOPCC, in order to be eligible for larger grants. Our need is urgent, as we have some grants in progress.
