The Free Clinic of Danville Fund
Last month, The Free Clinic of Danville Fund was established after the closing of the clinic due to low patient volume. This fund will annually award grants to nonprofit organizations that provide medical services including, but not limited to, behavioral health, hearing, speech, dental and screening targeting uninsured and under-insured adults in Danville and Pittsylvania County.
Thank you to our Veterans
The Danville area has a permanent reminder that “Freedom is Not Free.” A Veterans Memorial dedicated in 2007 in Dan Daniel Memorial Park features a black granite wall inscribed with the names of all local men and women who died in all of our nation’s conflicts from the Revolutionary War to our current War on Terrorism. More than 6,400 bricks have been engraved to honor veterans of all branches of service, not only from the local area but also from any location, any war, or any time period.

In honor of Veterans Day, please consider making a donation in honor or in memory of a loved one, and please take time to visit the Veterans Memorial.
