Volunteers In Medicine Has Appreciation Luncheon June 15

Wednesday, May 23, 2018

Cabot Creamery Co-operative and their mobile Farmers' Gratitude Grille will provide the volunteers of Volunteers in Medicine Chattanooga with a lunch on Friday, June 15. It will be held at the VIM Chattanooga location at 5705 Marlin Road, Suite 1400, next to the Eastgate Public Library. 

“The work of Volunteers in Medicine is changing people’s lives for the better in their local community,” said Nate Formalarie, communications manager for Cabot Creamery. “The farm families who own Cabot are often the first to volunteer in their communities and look to show gratitude to like-minded volunteers where their products are sold.” 

The luncheon is for those who are now, or who have ever volunteered, and for those planning on volunteering at the clinic when they retire. To make a reservation to attend, click here.  

VIM Chattanooga is a free and charitable medical clinic that opened its doors on May 5, 2005. It provides primary and preventative health care to eligible individuals and families of Hamilton and surrounding counties in Tennessee and Georgia who otherwise have no access to public or private health insurance. 

For further information, please contact Ashley Evans, executive director, aevans@vim-chatt.org or 855-8220. Please visit the VIM website at www.vim-chatt.org

The 1,000 Farm Families who own Cabot Creamery Co-operative believe in the spirit of volunteering and honoring people who work to make their communities better places to live. The Cabot Farmers’ Gratitude Grille is one way their farm families thank volunteers for all that they do. The Gratitude Grille is a full service traveling kitchen where Cabot chefs prepare "healthy, delicious, and complementary" meals to feed hungry volunteers.
