MedCare Hosts Backpack/School Supply Drive July 14th-August 4th!

It’s almost back to school time, which means it’s Backpack Drive time!  We will be hosting our annual backpack drive from Monday, July 14th-Monday, August 4th.  Backpacks and supplies will be distributed to needy families the week of August 11th, just in time for school to start on the 25th!

We will be accepting donations at the corporate office as well as at each of the clinic locations.  Our backpacks will be given out on a first come, first serve basis and we really want to make sure that we are targeting families who really have a need for assistance.   

Examples of some of the requested items include:

#2 Pencils
Hand Sanitizer
Composition books
Colored Pencils

If you have any questions, please contact Sommer LaShomb at (713) 773-5100 ext. 131!

How Far Will You Grow Door Decorating Contest

Every year at MedCare we choose a theme that will represent our goals for the upcoming year.  Tied to this theme are many fun activities for our staff and our patients throughout the year!  This year's theme is "How Far Will You Grow" as many of our goals for 2014 have to do with growth, both personally and professionally.  Last week, we held a door decorating contest at all locations and encouraged staff to use their talents and creativity to bring our How Far Will You Grow theme to life.  Our creative staff went above and beyond to make some beautifully decorated doors and the full display can be found on our Facebook page but we wanted to give the winners a little special recognition here!
