More than two years since Dr. Joe Craig and his son, Chris, cut the ribbon on Brightway, The Craig Agency in St. Petersburg, the father-and-son duo continues to help provide “brighter” days to those in need. The insurance franchise put others in the holiday spirit with another annual contribution to the St. Petersburg Free Clinic.

Dr. Joe Craig, who is now a retired dentist, has been volunteering his services for more than 20 years to the clinic which is located just a few blocks down Fourth Street from their insurance office.

Brightway, The Craig Agency presented the St. Pete Free Clinic team with a check for $2,095 this past week. This is the insurance agency’s third consecutive year of showing its support for this very worthy organization. “Our relationship is a special one,” Dr. Craig said. “We are happy to make a contribution to this charitable organization during the holidays.”

Throughout the year, volunteers staff the dental center and medical clinic five days a week providing thousands of patients with basic health care.

The St. Petersburg Free Clinic accepts contributions from individuals and organizations year-round. Click here to learn how you can donate to the clinic.
