HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- One organization is taking medical care out of the doctor's office and to the streets.

Marshall Medical Outreach has teamed up with a street ministry that feeds people who are homeless or unemployed.

One Saturday per month, the two groups now set up together in the parking lot of Trinity Episcopal Church in Huntington.

Those in need can go eat a free breakfast and get free medical attention. That includes screenings, exams, immunizations, prescription medications and even glasses.

"It's a very great deal because it's help to get what I need when I can't afford to get it myself," Sheila Chappell, a patient, said.

Last month, Marshall Medical Outreach served nearly 600 patients at no cost.
