Marian University College of Osteopathic Medicine: Operation Leftover — A community service event

November 12, 2015 @ 6:30 pm - 9:15 pm


BRI serves the Poor

NOTE: This event takes place in the eastern time zone.

The Marian University College of Osteopathic Medicine – BRI Chapter will be pairing up with the Thomas More Society and Operation Leftover to meet and serve the homeless and impoverished in Indianapolis. We will meet at St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church to take canned foods, warm clothing, personal hygiene items, and other appropriate donations to people in need around downtown Indianapolis.

ALL are welcome and invited to join us in an evening of service. Donations are also appreciated.

Park in the parking lot at St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church.

POST-EVENT SUMMARY: A total of 50 people — eight medical students (seven from Marian University and one from Indiana University), teamed up with the Thomas More Society and Operation Leftover to gather donations (food, water, clothing, blankets, hygiene products, bus passes), and then walk around downtown Indianapolis giving these donations to the homeless. It was truly an eye opening experience seeing how these people lived, along with watching their expressions when we gave them so many things. This was a great event and we look forward to doing this again in the future.

To be an official club at MUCOM the school requires we have at least one community service event per semester. When I learned about Operation Leftover I thought this would be something great to do. We ended up getting 4 people to come out to help for BRI, and the Catholic Medical Association ended up coming as well after BRI promoted the event. I was talking with all the medical students before we started, and the students from the Catholic Medical Association were very interested in what BRI stands for. They are for getting government regulation out of healthcare, because they realize it diminishes the doctor-patient relationship. They see it makes healthcare more expensive, and causes doctors to spend less time with patients because there is more busywork. They also don’t like how these regulations, Obamacare being the big one, force doctors to do things for patients that goes against their religion.
