JOHNSON CITY — Members of the local giving circle 100+Tri-Cities Women Who Care selected Crossroads Medical Mission as the recipient of the 13th Big Give event.
In total, members and friends have pledged to donate over $10,000. The announcement was made at a live event held at the Watauga Brewing Company earlier this month.
Crossroads Medical Mission delivers primary, urgent and chronic care to approximately 2,000 uninsured and low-income patients per year in the Tri-Cities area.
They recently purchased a building in Bristol to better serve the needs of the community. Cindy Rockett, Executive Director of Crossroad Medical Mission stated, “100+Tri-Cities Women Who Care is such a remarkable and effective model of philanthropy! Joining together so many women can make such a huge impact as evidenced by their effect on Crossroads Medical Mission.
“Combined, the contributions are helping furnish a procedure and exam room in our new expansion clinic in downtown Bristol, helping us to continue providing healthcare free of charge to the uninsured of the region.”
The 100+Tri-Cities Women Who Care giving circle and their partner has collectively donated more than $180,000 to local nonprofits since its creation in 2019.
Meredith Meyer, a giving circle member stated, “it is great to work with other giving circle women who are very passionate about the Tri-Cities area.” She continued, “I am very proud to support the amazing work done by Crossroads Medical Mission.”
The 14th Big Give event will take place at a live event in September 2022 and area women are invited to consider becoming members. It is a fantastic way to meet and network with like-minded women who are interested in investing in and serving the local community.
