The McNeill family have had the opportunity to support their local and global community in many ways over the years. They have partnered with some of the following charities over the years by donating patient payments to these great groups during our donation weeks:
Make a wish foundation, CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates), Kid’s Kids, Texas Dental Association Smiles Foundation, Dallas Morning News charities and Mission Challenge.
The Goats for God – Mission Challenge in Costa Rica is a group that Dr. McNeill and his family have supported through the years with their time and their gifts. This is a faith based group that provides goats to local communities in need through their local village church. They also help with medical clinics, clothing drives and bible schools throughout Costa Rica. It has been great to be so involved with this group.
