Project Access NOW would like to share with you one more excellent reason to give a huge shout out of appreciation for all our dedicated health care providers. As many of you know, our original program, that we now refer to as Classic, was the creation of a network of hospitals and providers collaborating to provide donated health care services to low income, uninsured people in our community.
Throughout the pandemic, our dedication to providing access to excellent health care services to our clients has never wavered. Despite shut downs, cancellations and rescheduling of appointments, procedures, treatments and surgeries, our volunteers have remained committed to seeing our clients and supporting their health and well-being.
Most years, as a small token of our immense gratitude for providing these donated health care services, our staff has put together gift baskets and holiday cards and delivered them to many of our volunteer clinic offices. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, that has not been possible this year.
We ask that you join us in extending and extra special thank you to the health care workers in your life. Whether they volunteer with Project Access NOW or not, (and over 3,000 providers in the Portland Metro area do!), we are humbled by their resilience and dedication to saving lives.
As we come to the close of this most challenging year, may we all demonstrate our appreciation and support for our healthcare workers by wearing our masks, washing our hands, keeping our distance, and getting vaccinated when it’s our turn.
All of us at Project Access NOW
