myDOCTORplan donates to VAC

myDOCTORplan recently donated $5,000 to the Voluntary Action Center. Because the donation was made during a matching drive funded by an anonymous donor, the donation actually brought in $10,000 to the organization.

myDOCTORplan announced that they have made a donation of $5,000 to the Voluntary Action Center (VAC) during the VAC’s matching grant program which doubled the donation to $10,000. These funds will be used to help with the VAC’s expansion of their community kitchen allowing them to serve more meals to needy families and individuals.

Since the opening of the VAC community kitchen in 2011, the VAC has served the citizens of Gordon county in many different ways in times of hardship. The VAC has served over 180,000 hot meals since opening their doors. In 2019 the VAC provided 2,926 families with grocery boxes, prevented 68 families from being evicted, 106 families from having power/water shut off, provided 799 children with clothing and toys for Christmas and more. 

“myDOCTORplan’s generous donation will help ensure individuals and families continue to receive support through our hunger and homeless outreach programs. Together, with other donations like myDOCTORplan’s, we were able to raise $60,000 ... $10,000 more than our original goal!” said Stacy Long, executive director of the VAC.
