* The Health Wagon
The Health Wagon’s mission is to provide compassionate, quality health care to the medically underserved people in the Mountains of Appalachia. Our values are inclusiveness, community outreach, collaboration, spirituality and empowerment.
Let us tell you The Health Wagon story. Our average patient is 38 years old. Ninety-eight percent of our patients are uninsured. Seventy percent of them have an income of less than $20,000 annually, despite working multiple jobs. This means they make too much money to qualify for Medicaid, but not enough to afford private insurance. Our patients live in desperately poverty-stricken rural Appalachia, where they can’t afford to go to the doctor but can’t afford not to. The mobility of our health clinic means we are able to fill the gap, whether they are inline at the food bank or at their job, we bring healthcare to them. (READ MORE)

* Carolyn Collins ('care closet')
Carolyn Collins is a custodian at Tucker High School in Tucker, Georgia. But she does a lot more than clean up the school. For the past three years, Collins has taken it upon herself to collect clothes, school supplies and food for the school’s homeless students. She keeps her supplies in the “Care Closet” which is located in a corner of the cafeteria and often uses her own money to keep it stocked.
Everything in “Care Closet” is free for kids who are less fortunate to take what they need. Collins estimates that she helps between 20 to 30 students a year. However, she believes there are even more students who could benefit.
These are our babies,” she said. “They just want to learn. I just want to take care of them. Some of them sleeping in cars, some in hotels.”
Local residents can help out Collins’ cause by leaving donations at the front desk of Tucker High School at the attention of Carolyn Collins:
