Community Care Clinic to host virtual Soup for the Soul fundraiser
FRISCO — The Summit Community Care Clinic is hosting its 13th annual Soup for the Soul event on Thursday, June 4, but this time it will be virtual, Development Director Nissa Erickson said.
The event was originally scheduled to be held at Keystone Resort at the end of March, but was canceled with the onset of the novel coronavirus pandemic. In years past the event acted for a fundraiser for the clinic’s mental health services.
While people can still donate to the clinic on the event’s website, the focus of this years event is to uplift spirits during a difficult time, Erickson said. It will be free for everyone to attend.
“We recognize the changes we are all experiencing are difficult, but that we can get through it together and by helping one another,” Erickson wrote in an email about the event.
The clinic will be broadcasting videos with messages of encouragement along with music from Hazel Miller & The Collective from 6-8 p.m. on Thursday, June 4. People who want to tune into the event can watch the broadcast on Channel 8 or stream online at TV8’s website or Facebook page.
Participate in The Longevity Project
The Longevity Project is an annual campaign to help educate readers about what it takes to live a long, fulfilling life in our valley. This year Kevin shares his story of hope and celebration of life with his presentation Cracked, Not Broken as we explore the critical and relevant topic of mental health.
People who wish to donate to the clinic can do so in a number of ways. The clinic is accepting donations on the event page for the fundraiser. People can also buy a gift card to a local restaurant through the “Takeout Wall” part of the event.
This year’s goal is $100,000 and the clinic is 65% of the way to achieving that, according to the event’s website.
