Crossroads Medical Mission says thanks to community for support

Dear Editor,
Mountain City is a community that cares for its neighbors.   
This year, Crossroads Medical Mission celebrates its tenth year serving Mountain City and the Mountain Empire by bringing free medical care to individuals in need with an emphasis on the uninsured and underinsured.  We partner with other service and faith organizations throughout the region to provide this much needed care and have provided over $6.5 million dollars in health care services free of charge.
Regardless, this letter is not to share Crossroads Medical Mission’s accomplishments.  Rather, we would like to celebrate the caring people of Mountain City.  Crossroads could not deliver this level of care without the support of the communities we serve.  And so, I would like to take the opportunity to thank the fine folks of Bristol. Your businesses, churches, and charitable foundations have supported Crossroads Medical Mission. 
Your local dentists and healthcare specialists have supported Crossroads.  Many of you, your friends and families have contributed generously of your time (3000 hours a year) and resources to make Crossroads Medical Mission possible. What a blessing you have been to us and the patients we serve. 
Last month, as we pulled into one of our partnership sites, someone exclaimed, “Here comes the medical bus!” But a patient standing nearby corrected him by saying, “We don’t call it the
medical bus, we call it the Miracle Bus!”
I’d like to suggest that the miracle is the compassion, caring and generosity of our local communities! Thank you for caring for your neighbors through Crossroads Medical Mission.
Crossroads Medical Mission would like to invite you to tour our new mobile medical clinic on Sunday, September 9, from noon until 2:00 PM.  We will be located in the parking lot of State Street United Methodist Church at 300 W. Valley Drive in Bristol Virginia (across the street from Virginia High School).  Allow us to say, “Thank you!” to you in person for being part of our ten years as “The Doctors’ Office on Wheels” and as we give thanks to God always for you!
