Supplies needed for Medical Clinic opening

November 2, 2010

We’re working hard to prepare for the opening of the new Medical Clinic with our sister church in Haiti. The following is a list of supplies we need for the Clinic. We need your help! Please bring your donations to church any time before December 31st.

Use your Flexible Spending Account (FSA)

Did you know that you can use your Flexible Spending Account funds to buy supplies for Haiti? Most of the items on our list qualify as covered items under FSA’s. So, if you have extra funds in your account that you need to spend before the end of the year, consider a donation to our Medical Clinic in Haiti.

Also, Drugstore.com has an FSA store/ tab where everything in it qualfies for FSA reimbursement.  If you purchase $50 or more of products, the shipping is free.  It is easy and convenient to do this.
