On Saturday, March 13, the Morton Memorial Church’s monthly curbside food distribution will begin at 8 a.m. and will continue until 10 a.m. The St. Thomas Mobile Health Unit will open for patients at 9 a.m. and continue until 1 p.m.
In order to maintain social distancing, drivers should enter the food distribution line from behind the church where they will be directed to the loading area. If you are unable to load your own vehicle, volunteers will be there to assist.
The St. Thomas Mobile Health Unit does not require an appointment, and it is open to all members of the community. Only one patient at a time will be allowed in the van, and patients are asked to wear masks. If you do not have a mask, one will be provided. The services offered are limited medications when needed, acute illness treatment (COVID testing is not available), well-child exams (no immunization at this time), and annual physicals. No opioids are available at the van.
All patient costs for services provided are covered by a grant from the South Cumberland Community Fund. If patients are insured, the service will file insurance. Copays, deductibles, etc., will be covered by the South Cumberland Community Fund. All are welcome.
Morton Memorial United Methodist Church is located at 322 West Main St., Monteagle.
