Following a Feb. 18 fire that destroyed a free medical clinic in Pinckney, the community has responded with an outpouring of donations, according to a report by the Daily Press & Argus.
Faith Medical Clinic served about 2,000 uninsured patients. About 120 patients also were treated there by the University of Michigan Student Run Free Clinic.

About $30,000 has been raised so far to bring Faith Medical Clinic's operations back on board -- two-thirds of which were raised at an event Saturday at Mission Church in Pinckney, according to the report.
Thousands of dollars of medical equipment also has been donated to the clinic. The Faith Medical Clinic is seeking a space to lease for its operations. Additional donations are needed.
