Agency Highlight: Cahaba Valley Health Care began in 2001 offering vision screening to people in financial need in Jefferson and Shelby Counties. In 2003 they began dental screenings, and have now added clinics for fillings and extractions. In 2016 CVHC moved to Cooper Green Health Services and the patient load has grown from hundreds to thousands. All of this is done while maintaining the clients’ dignity, respecting their cultural diversity, and strengthening the community.

Outreach Opportunities:

We are partnering with GASP and New Beginnings Church to help provide food to our neighbors in North Birmingham. We need 50 bags of food brought to St. Luke’s the week of July 25-29 and left in the bins under the porte cochere. We could also use a few folks to help us load and deliver the bags on July 30 at 10:00. Sign up here

Keep in mind that in the fall we hope to begin daily Meals on Wheels deliveries of hot (not frozen!!) food to the residents at Highland Manor. We need many hands and you can decide what works best for you. This could be once a week, twice a month, once a month, or be a sub. Please let me know if you are interested.

St. Andy’s Pantry is a ministry of St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church, feeding about 300 people at each food distribution. Volunteers are needed to stock the pantry, check in guests, and hand out the
bags. To volunteer, click here.

Greater Birmingham Ministries. Food Distribution: Volunteers needed to help load food bags into cars as folks drive through. Each family receives 2 bags of groceries plus meat. They usually finish before 8:30a.m. The next date is Aug 20. Sign up here.

Thanks to the many of you who contributed to meals for the youth working at Sawyerville camp this summer. Every meal was very appreciated!!
