It is that time of year for our annual campaign to help support the Mattaponi Eagle Healing Clinic.  Last year the congregation of Trinity Methodist Church contributed over $3,000 to help purchase supplies that included both needed medical items, vaccinations and personal hygiene items for the Mattaponi Eagle Healing Clinic. 

These contributions helped sustain services to over 125 families of native Americas mostly from the Mattaponi and Upper Mattaponi tribes but also including assistance for request from the Rappahannock, Pamunkey and Chickahominy tribes in Eastern and Central Virginia.  Diane Garrison who is the coordinator of Indian affairs was extremely thankful for our support particularly during these difficult times.

This year Diane is again asking for monetary donations to help the staff and the volunteers needed to handle the logistics of storage and distribution of medical and other supplies.  The Eagle Clinic has made an arrangement with a local Mechanicsville drug store program that provides medical supplies, including prescriptions, baby formula and children’s diapers on a more targeted and effective manner.  

The Healing Eagle Clinic still has doctors and nurses administer patient care on an as needed basis.  Your contributions will help support these efforts by providing the necessary medical supplies.

If you would like to make a monetary donation –make a check out to Trinity United Methodist Church and put in the memo line The Mattaponi Healing Eagle Clinic. You can also go to the Trinity web site and click on Give, select “Give as Guest” or “Give Online” and choose Mattaponi Healing Eagle clinic in the fund list (or click here).

Thank you in advance for your continuing support
