Today is Giving Tuesday and we're counting down the days to Colorado Gives Day - which is Dec. 10. Our goal is to raise $25,000 to support services for families like Sarah Williams and her two sons. Read more about Sarah and why she brings her sons to Every Child Pediatrics here.
Our greatest need is help covering the cost of services for thousands of children without health insurance. For uninsured patients, a gift of $1,000 will cover the cost of seven well-child checks for a baby in his or her first year of life. You can help ensure a baby receives immunizations to be protected from harmful diseases, is screened for healthy growth and development and the baby’s parents receive important nutrition and safety information. A gift of $500 will pay for four behavioral health counseling visits to help a teenager cope with stress, a mental health condition or crisis. Physicals are usual requirements for students to be cleared to participate in sports and school activities - your gift of $150 will pay for that important visit with a medical provider and open up great opportunities for healthy activities.
We appreciate any level of support you can give. You can schedule your Colorado Gives Day donation here. Thank you and happy holidays!
