A helping hand for Servant's Heart of Indy

The cold, rainy weather didn't dampen the St. Francis Medical Group's community fundraiser for Servant's Heart of Indy Saturday, April 28.

Led by President Dr. Isaac J. Myers II, SFMG staffers and volunteers hosted a bake sale, farmers' market, bake sale, children's game and other activities at Beech Grove Family and Internal Medicine, 2030 Churchman Ave. An estimated $1,400 was collected in sales.

They also accepted donated bicycles, which will be reconditioned and distributed to needy families next December.

Franciscan St. Francis Health clinical staff also were on hand to provide free health screenings to the public.

Servant's Heart was established to help families in Beech Grove and the surrounding area by providing year-round support for those struggling to make ends meet.
