Bank donates to Cove Free Clinic during annual chamber mixer
It was a full house at National United Bank in Copperas Cove for their annual Chamber of Commerce Christmas Mixer last Thursday night.
Eric Armstrong, bank president, welcomed the crowd and also made a special presentation to Brian Hawkins, executive director of the Cove House Homeless Shelter and Free Clinic.
Armstrong presented Hawkins with a $1,500 check for the free clinic.
Hawkins said the money was most appreciated and shared some information on the free clinic’s work. “Many of you in this room support the Cove House and its ministry,” said Brian Hawkins. “I appreciate each and everyone of you for what you do and what your businesses do. This donation right here, for as far as I can remember, is the biggest single donation we get every year for the clinic. To help us keep doing the clinic work.
“Metroplex makes that entire building available to us now,” said Hawkins. “We had been using about half of it and they decided to let us use the rest of it this week. We are now able to expand our services and the opportunity to help more people. This last November we celebrated the 5th year of the free clinic in Copperas Cove. The first year we saw 287 patients. We’ll finish this year just a hair over 2,000.
