Celebrating 20 Years!

February marks LVIM’s 20th anniversary of providing FREE, high-quality, and compassionate outpatient medical, dental and mental healthcare to the underserved and indigent, specifically the working uninsured.

At LVIM, the treatment is free.  The care is priceless.

Help us celebrate our 20 YEARS and join us for a Virtual Travel Auction!  The auction is LIVE and will close at 7 PM on Saturday, February 20th.  Click here to bid TODAY.

What if we give YOU the opportunity to support LVIM’s mission and you could bid on a trip of a lifetime?  What if we told you that you had THREE YEARS to book and NO blackout dates?

Check back every day this week as we reveal the special opportunities you will have to support LVIM’s mission of providing FREE healthcare to the working uninsured of Polk County over the past 20 Years.

Many are missing the joys of travel during the pandemic. If you could travel anywhere, where would you like to go for your next vacation?

We are going to have some fun in February celebrating our 20th anniversary and we have some surprises planned! Save the date, February 17th, and check back often for clues about what we have planned.  Updates will be posted here or you can follow us on Facebook or Instagram.

Congratulations Mary!

LVIM is excited to announce that Mary Terry has been promoted to Operations Manager.

When Mary joined the LVIM team as the Clinical Trainer in August of last year, she filled a great need in our clinic assisting our volunteer providers with learning the electronic health record.  Shortly thereafter, she quickly and excitedly took on the training of all volunteer positions (with the exception of Intake Screeners).  This addition alleviated the pressure on the Volunteer Manager’s position and helped LVIM rethink our organizational structure in order to improve the flow of communication and balance out the workload on some of our positions.

Since joining the LVIM family, Mary has been all-in in every aspect. Not only has she excelled in her role as a trainer, she has led quality and process improvement efforts, has taken on data collection, and stepped up to manage the YMCA Steps to Good Health Program.

Please join us in thanking Mary for all she does for LVIM and congratulating her on her promotion.

 

Mobile Food Pantry

         

February 2021 Update

In March of 2020, LVIM became a Mobile Food Pantry site twice a month thanks to the George W Jenkins End Hunger Initiative in partnership with United Way of Central Florida and Feeding Tampa Bay.

Since then, we have provided over 150,000 lbs of fresh food to 5,757 Households including 19,159 people, of which 6,468 are children and 1,514 are patients of LVIM. This would not be possible without the above-mentioned partnerships, volunteers, and staff who work hard twice a month distributing food to the community.

LVIM will continue to host the Mobile Food Pantry on the SECOND and LAST Tuesdays of each month.  Registration begins at 11 AM and distribution is from 12 PM – 2 PM or until supplies run out.

To ensure we are good neighbors to those who live around us and to enable us to serve as many households as possible, please make note of the items listed below.

  • Registration will not begin until 11 AM.
  • NO parking on Peachtree prior to the registration time.
  • Please do not block driveways to homes and businesses.
  • Limit of 2 households per car and a member of the household must be present.
