Free clinic provides services for those in need

Posted: Updated:
MADISON (WKOW) -- One of two free clinics that provide a variety of health services was held Saturday at Calvary Gospel Church in Madison.

The clinic included free health screenings, dental care, counseling services, haircuts and more. An open food pantry and a hot meal were also provided. In addition, the Red Cross held a blood drive at today's event.

The clinics are organized by Madison's branch of Touched Twice, a national non-profit that works to unite churches and volunteers to provide physical and spiritual assistance to local communities. Organizers say the clinics are a way to reach out to those who may be struggling to obtain basic necessities.

"It's just an opportunity for us to love people and to meet their needs," says facilities director, Ben Thompson. "It's meant to meet needs in the community that aren't being met and to also meet their physical needs as well as their spiritual needs."

Touched Twice holds the clinics two times a year.
