Don't miss all the news and updates coming from our clinic!
We are excited to welcome Nancy Liu to our Helping Hands Health and Wellness Center team! Nancy joins us as our Media, Fundraising & Community AmeriCorps VISTA. Nancy joined our team after relocating from Georgia. She already has some ideas on how to execute amazing projects and we're excited to have her on the team.
I know it is hard during this COVID-19 pandemic, but if you have a place in Columbus/Central Ohio that you LOVE, please feel free to share with Nancy at firstname.lastname@example.org. She's excited to learn about her new city!
First Clinic Success
THANK YOU to everyone who worked so hard to make our reopening a success. Our clinic has officially reopened as of Thursday, July 23, 2020 and we are thrilled to be providing care to patients once again. We have been able to serve 6 patients per week with our new hybrid care model.
While we need a little more time to determine if this model will be sustainable in the long haul of the pandemic, these first few weeks of success have certainly pointed us in the right direction.
Thank You to Continental Office
We are blessed to have Continental Office as a generous community partner. Continental Office donated cubicle walls to allow us to create 7 more exam rooms for our patients. While we served 6 patients during the first 2 weeks of our clinic reopening, we are now able to serve 10 patients each and every week, thanks to their generosity. Thank you Continental Office for supporting our mission, our model, and our patients.

Bowl to Help - 2020 Update
As a reminder, Bowl to Help on August 29, 2020 is CANCELED. While we would love to host Bowl to Help again this year, we want to keep our supporters and our community safe from the spread of the Coronavirus. We will miss seeing you all at the event this year, but we have secured a date for 2021 and are excited to make that a sensational comeback year!
SAVE THE DATE: Bowl to Help 2021 will take place on Saturday, August 28, 2021
PS - I know what you're thinking... They just canceled Bowl to Help; what's going to happen to all of the amazing raffle prizes? STAY TUNED!! We'll be making an announcement soon about some other events to take place later this year.
