One Day Clinic to Help Those in Need

Organizations and churches across Anderson County and beyond have come together to create a special one day clinic to provide medical, dental, vision exams and more for those who can’t afford insurance and medical care.

Steven McKaig, outreach coordinator for Alton Baptist Church, explained that the one day clinic, called Touched Twice, will help bring together various medical services and possibly include other services like personal care, clothing donations, food, family portraits, and more to those in need in Anderson County.

The idea to bring about the Touched Twice Clinic in Anderson County came from the interim pastor at Alton Baptist, Andy McDonald.  Steven, who at the time just recently started leading the missions outreach team of the church, thought the clinic would be great to bring to the county.

The Touched Twice Clinics, which started back in 1996, have been held all over the country, including a number in Kentucky.  Steven along with a number of others decided to participate in the Shelby County clinic last year to learn more.  Gaining knowledge of the large clinic that attracted hundreds of volunteers and participants in Shelby County, Steven and his team started seriously planning the clinic here in Anderson County this past November.

He has organized a number of local churches and other charitable organizations to help provide services at the clinic, which will be held at the Christian Academy of Lawrenceburg on July 29th from 10am to 4pm.  He explained that they are in need of many volunteers to help coordinate the event, which could draw hundreds of people.
