Hear From Our GEM Club Members

“As a mother, I love feeding people and caring for people- when my kids were living at home, if they brought a friend over, of course I fed them. I cared for them. So it was natural for me to become a Big Bend Cares Gem Club member and help feed and provide medical care for people in our community. These people are just friends I haven’t met yet! It is so easy- it’s literally 50 cents a day. You might have that much in your car’s center console- random quarters and dimes.  I cannot feed everyone, I cannot help everyone, but I can help SOMEONE, and know that my contribution DOES help. And I love that!” – GEM Club Member, Andi C.

“Fighting food insecurity and providing health care access for everyone is so important to our community. That’s why I’m proud to be a GEM Club member! Please join me in helping to improve lives of those in need.” – GEM Club Member, Elizabeth Rawls, Acupuncturist, Registered Nurse & Mom
