Looking Back on 2021
For all of us, 2021 has certainly been a challenging year. The Vashon Care Network's Care Closet team fulfilled an unprecedented demand for medical equipment and supplies from our Care Closet.
From January 1 of 2020 through the end of October, the Care Closet provided 1,450 pieces of equipment and a host of medical supplies free of charge to 658 people in response to the needs of Island families and individuals. In addition, VCN provided equal amounts of equipment in support of Bridge Disability Ministries and Gateway Medical Alliance.
Thanks to the generous support of our Island community, we completed our Barn Dance fundraising endeavor and the construction of two storage barns to store our ever-increasing inventory at the Vashon Lutheran Church .
Planning for 2022
We are looking forward to new beginnings in 2022 for the Vashon Care Network that will underwrite $36,000 in funding support for the following program and operating areas:
Expanded support for Island caregivers, families, and individuals
Increased funding for caregiver education and training
Meeting the growing demand for the distribution of loaned medical equipment and free hygiene supplies
Expanded donations for the purchase of Care Closet equipment and supplies
Installation of new inventory control and distribution systems, and online access for Islanders to request equipment and supplies
Communication, marketing, and development support.
As well as our Vashon community support, we note with deep gratitude that the mission, services and administration of the Vashon Care Network are performed and delivered entirely by our dedicated volunteers.
Please accept our invitation to join this committed group of our fellow islanders.
Thanks for all that you do for us and thanks for you!
