Medical City Las Colinas in the Community
At Medical City Las Colinas, we strive to make an impact on the community we serve. Our staff is committed to offering exceptional healthcare to our patients, but also providing for the additional needs of our neighbors. A local charity is selected quarterly, in which time the hospital will plan a day to volunteer and coordinate various fundraisers to offer a monetary gift. The following are charities in Irving that we support:
Ensuring that the most basic human needs are met is an important measure of a city’s quality of life. It is what Irving citizens believed when they founded Irving Cares 52 years ago, and it is still true today.
Since 1957, Irving Cares has offered a hand up, not a handout, for Irving families in crisis. The agency served more than 30,000 people in the community last year, and the need continues to increase. Irving Cares promotes client self-sufficiency providing a food pantry, limited financial assistance for rent, mortgage, utilities, and prescriptions; employment services; transportation to medical facilities and prescription deliveries, and information and referral. More information can be found at www.irvingcares.org.
The Main Place
The Main Place in Irving, Texas provides clothing and personal items for homeless teens and individuals and/or families in need. Volunteers act as “image consultants” and provide trendy, age appropriate, well-fitting clothing. Our goal is to raise their self-esteem by pointing out their best features and outfitting them from head to toe – including proper foundation garments and jewelry for the girls. The Main Place is a “retail store without a cash register” – allowing the students to shop at no cost. They come in with their head down; they leave with bags full of clothing and big smiles on their faces. www.themainplaceirving.org/
The 2435 Clinic is a free medical clinic open to the public for those in our community who need diagnostic medical care, school physicals, and other minor medical services. The clinic also offers nutrition education, chiropractic and preventative care. The clinic’s mission is to be the healing hands of Jesus to those who are hurting, both inside the IBC body and beyond.
