Medical City Las Colinas strongly believes that it is our job to make an impact on our community outside of our four walls. Our employees are passionate about serving our neighbors so we offer them an opportunity to volunteer with a local non-profit organization once a quarter. This initiative is called LCMC in the Community and we couldn’t be more proud of our employees for stepping up and making a difference!
In the first quarter of 2014, 30 Medical City Las Colinas employees took over Irving Cares for a day. Irving Cares describes themselves as, “committed to providing essential services to Irving, Texas residents in need. We strive to meet those needs with caring volunteers and staff that guide our clients through their crises. We offer proven programs that are efficient, effective, and measured for productivity.
Services include financial assistance for rent, mortgage, utilities, or prescriptions; a food pantry; an employment services program; transportation to medical appointments and information and referral.
Our programs are about more than paying the bills; they’re about self-sufficiency, offering a hand up, not a handout, for those in need.”
Our employees worked in the food pantry unloading, organizing, and stocking canned goods. They also worked one-on-one with clients to fill their grocery orders. After they meet the designated criteria, clients that come to Irving Cares for assistance are provided with a month of groceries for their family. Medical City Las Colinas volunteers were able to work with them and help them through this process.
It was an incredible day of service for an incredible organization. Medical City Las Colinas is proud to partner with local groups that are making a difference for our neighbors. If you are interested in volunteering with or donating to Irving Cares, visit their website at www.irvingcares.org.
