VIM is a free medical clinic serving low income residents of Cape May County with no access to health insurance. Thanks to the wonderful team of Volunteer Physicians, Nurses, Administrative Professionals and generous Sponsors, VIM has served more than 4,000 individuals with more than 26,000 office visits all at no charge to the patient, since opening day in 2002. VIM's thought for the Holiday season:
They're trying to make healthcare cheaper and fair
But still, many are left out; still need our care
Deductibles, copays and expensive meds
Cause these many left-outs to have achy heads
Volunteers in Medicine of County Cape May
Care for their neighbors –their motto each day
The clinic exists because of people like you
Donate time and money; that’s what you do.
But our patients need help with exams and prescriptions,
Consults, x-rays and tests to cure their afflictions
Your cash donation will help VIM pay the bills
But VIM needs much more than that for their ills.
VIM needs Doctors and nurses and other skilled staff.
Also help with the phones and computers- that's only half
We also need someone to plow when it snows.
and also to cut grass when in season it grows
Our parking lot is uneven and rough, has many bumps
Some donated stone and the labor could erase all of those lumps
Events to raise money mean we have lots of stuff
A free shed for its storage would make it less rough
We always are in need of a supply of good food
It helps keep our volunteers in a jovial mood
"K cups, tea bags and a nice healthy snack,
Popcorn, nuts and diet coke - that's just for our Doctor Tac!
If the holidays incline you to share your wealth
Give your gift to VIM, give the gift of good health.
And if 2014 is your year to spread cheer
come join us at VIM, come VOLUNTEER!
