To the Editor:

Coastal Volunteers in Medicine will be the charitable recipient for the Sea Shell Club’s 22nd Annual Striped Bass Derby Oct. 26-28.

Coastal Volunteers in Medicine is a free, non-emergency, family clinic for those without medical insurance residing in parts of Southern Ocean County. This group addresses the health needs of people excluded from the healthcare system beyond their physical illnesses. This is done by:

• Relieving hard-working healthcare providers (individuals and organizations) of their non-paying patients. 

• Relieving individuals and families of having to choose between paying for medication vs. paying for food.

• Addressing primary healthcare needs where they belong: in a family care setting instead of in an emergency room.

• Preventing the development of full-blown emergent health conditions by addressing health problems at their onset.

• Increasing health and wellness to a substantial part of the workforce.

• Building a sense of community and caring that transcends barriers and delivers a sense of joy and value to those who serve.

We are proud to help this fine local charitable organization. Please help us to do that by being a sponsor this year. Sponsor forms are available on our website, theseashellresort.com.
