Baptist Men halfway to $400,000 goal
    January 3 2011 by BSC Communications

    A $100,000 matching donation from the Friess Family Foundation pushed N.C. Baptist Men over the halfway point of what they need to purchase a mobile dental unit totaling $400,000.

    So far $225,000 has been raised in order to replace a 1989 Blue Bird bus.

    “Each year, we are blessed to be able to treat over 4,500 patients on our two buses and involve over 1,500 medical professionals in missions. In the last five years alone, we have treated more than 20,000 patients with the help of 15,000 volunteers,” said Richard Brunson, Baptist Men executive director-treasurer.

    “We have worn out our 1989 unit, but are finding there is a greater need than ever for this ministry. With the current economic condition, many people are not going to a dentist, and this is resulting in many other adverse health conditions.”

    The new unit will include two exam rooms, sterilization center, digital X-ray processing, and computers, DVDs and TV screens to help educate patients about good health care practices.

    “Because of this gift from the Friess Family Foundation, and the other gifts that have already been given and will be given, many people will see and hear about the love that Christ has for them,” Brunson said.

    To make a donation with a credit card, call Kecia Morgan at (800) 395-5102, ext. 5613. Checks made payable to N.C. Baptist Men can be mailed to: Mobile Dental Unit, NCBM, P.O. Box 1107, Cary, NC 27512.
