Compassion Clinic offers free medical, dental care and haircuts at Highview Middle School in New Brighton on Saturday

Churches across denominations will come together Saturday for a “compassion clinic” at Highview Middle School in New Brighton.

The clinic, which will run from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., will offer free care including medical checkups, chiropractic care, dental care, foot care and hair cuts from volunteer professionals.

No appointments can be made ahead of time, so people will be served on a first-come, first-served basis. Proof of insurance is not required, and Spanish interpreters will be available to assist clinic guests.

The churches partnering together to put on the clinic are Faith Christian Reformed, GracePoint, Salem Covenant, St. John the Baptist Catholic Church and Emmanuel Covenant, with other churches sending volunteers.

The clinic is sponsored by Compassion Connect, a nonprofit whose mission is to bring churches together to serve their neighborhoods. So far, compassion clinic communities have been created in Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Arizona and Minnesota. This is the second annual clinic in New Brighton.

Highview Middle School is located at 2300 7th St. NW. For more information, visit
