Knoxville's New Vision Weight Loss Clinic Community Outreach
One of our main goals and core values here at New Vision Weight Loss Clinic is serving others and having a positive impact in our community. We strive to do that every day, in and out of office, as well as, in various ways in our community outreach events.
October - November: Second harvest food bank drive
We collected items for Second Harvest Food Bank and collectively were able to donate over 200 food items to those in need right here in own community! We are so grateful for the opportunity to partner with them and we appreciate every individual who brought items in for the donation! Y’all rock!
August: Paddlin' pups at ijams nature center
Pups, paddles, nature, and fun - doesn't get much better than that! We loved supporting Ijams Nature Center, as well as, Small Breed Rescue of East Tennessee (SBRET) in this outdoor event! We did a one hour canoe / kayak tour of Otter Island with our furbabies aboard!
July : Oak ridge litter pick-up
We were honored to partner with Strata*G and help them clean up their adopted road in Oak Ridge. We gathered about 7 bags of trash over a 1.7 mile area.
May : 9th Annual Law Enforcement Memorial Race 5-K
We were so grateful to participate in this event and show our support for our Heroes in Blue! This event honors all Law Enforcement Officers in the Knoxville - Knox County area, along with the surrounding counties, who have made the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty as well as those working on the frontline every day. And as the sister of a KPD Officer, thank each one of you for you service!
April : Secret City 5-K for Haiti
While each event and charitable cause is always special, fundraisers supporting Haiti are especially dear to our hearts. We have served in Haiti alongside Samaritan's Purse doing medical missions in Cite Soleil, as well as, serving at multiple orphanages and helping to develop and build schools and churches. So any time we get to be active in our own community and the proceeds go to support individuals in need there - it's an extra special blessing!
March : Hardin Valley Litter Pick-Up
"Team up to clean up!" We had a blast helping the community pickup litter in the Hardin Valley area.
