SEARCY, Ark. – Unity Health recently held its 24th annual A Day of Caring, renamed to Community of Caring due to COVID-19. 754 participants received assistance through the medical mission, which helps uninsured and underinsured residents of White County and the surrounding areas.

This year, Community of Caring medical services took place at Unity Health – Searcy Medical Center Continuity Clinic while non-medical goods and services were handed out at the Carder building across from the ER entrance.

“We are so glad we were able to still serve our community despite the current climate,” Interim Foundation Lead & Marketing, Anna Brumfield said. “We look forward to this mission every year and are so blessed by everyone who volunteers and participates.”

Due to the current circumstances, 60 volunteers from Unity Health and the community helped hand out school supplies, bags of groceries, bags of personal care items, bibles at a no contact drive-thru and medical exams were done at the clinic. Each exam room was cleaned after every participant and volunteers wore masks and sanitized between each vehicle.
