A Youngstown church served up spaghetti on Sunday to help people who can’t afford health care.

St. Patrick Parish in Youngstown sponsored the spaghetti dinner benefit with the proceeds going to help the Midlothian Free Health Clinic.

The fundraiser will help provide medications, lab services and therapy for clients of the clinic.

The clinic’s medical director said there is a growing number of people who have lost their income and are either unable to afford insurance on their own or they don’t qualify for public assistance.

“The demand has continued to increase.  We started in March 2008 and it has continued to grow ever since then.  And I don’t see anything slowing it down, that’s for sure,” said Tom Albani, Medical Director for the Midlothian Free Health Clinic.

St. Patrick’s Church shares the proceeds of two of their annual spaghetti dinners to help local causes.
