The staff and volunteers of Grace Clinic would like to offer heart-felt thanks to you, our community, for your fantastic support of our recent Soup Sale.

We were absolutely blown away by the amount of resource donations from local businesses, from the media, local restaurants, churches, HCMH, the Elkin High School Interact Club and from the many volunteers who made our soup sale possible. Thanks to all of them and all of you who came to buy soup!

As this was our first soup sale, we underestimated the crowd of local soup-lovers and apologize to those of you we had to turn away after all the soup was gone. We promise to work hard to have more soup next year and so appreciate your support.

Grace Clinic provides medical care for those without health insurance, helping our community be a healthier one. God bless all of you who once again demonstrated that this is a community that supports its most vulnerable.

Bob Spencer is the executive director of the Grace Clinic.
