Halo Award presented to Beverly Mahone
PRLog - Dec. 9, 2012 - DURHAM, N.C. -- During a recent volunteer appreciation dinner sponsored by Healing with CAARE, Inc., Beverly Mahone was recognized for her fundraising efforts.

The Halo Award was presented to more than two dozen North Carolina residents who have donated their time, talents or money to the non-profit medical clinic.

In November, Beverly raised $1250 on behalf of CAARE, Inc., by hosting a Throwback to the 60s Fundraising Party.  Modern Woodmen of America matched her fundraising efforts, bringing the total raised to $2500.  She says she was inspired to do something to help the clinic because of their mission and purpose.  “When I heard about CAARE’s Homeless Military Dormitory Project, I felt compelled to try to do something to help.  Initially, I was going to have a social media networking party but after learning about Dr. Sharon Elliott-Bynum’s project, I was motivated to help.”  Healing with CAARE, Inc. is in the process of completing a 15-bed facility for homeless military veterans.

Beverly adds she loves the fact that the clinic offers medical care to people without health insurance.  “The clinic does not discriminate,” she says.  It doesn’t matter whether you’re young, old, black, white or latino, the staff will take care of you if you don’t have insurance.”  

CAARE, Inc. has been operating as a medical clinic since 1996.
