St. Bede’s Episcopal Church in Santa Fe, New Mexico, in partnership with medical debt recovery group RIP Medical Debt, was able to pay off the medical debt of almost 800 New Mexicans and Arizonans.

According to CBN News, by putting 10 percent of the donations made to the church each month aside for community outreach, St. Bede’s Episcopal Church was able to donate $15,000 to RIP Medical Debt. RIP Medical Debt, which, like a collection agency, buys medical debt for a fraction of the price, was able to then multiply the donation to pay off $1,380,119.87 in medical debt for 782 families in New Mexico and parts of Arizona.
