Pediatrics – Grow Clinic
Growth & Development Programs: Supply Drive
Many of the Grow Clinic children and their families are struggling with the cost of heat, food, and shelter year round. Finding additional funds to provide children with basic necessities is difficult indeed. With your help, we can support our patients and their families and help them to be warm and healthy. Your gift ensures that our yearly drive reaches not only our patients, but also their siblings, strengthening the whole family.
The Grow Clinic serves families in Boston at Boston Medical Center and also has a satellite clinic at the Brockton Neighborhood Health Center.
You can drop off your donations, Monday – Friday from 9 am – 5 pm.
Grow Clinic Annual Holiday Party and Toy Drive
Our annual Holiday Party is taking place Thursday, December 17th, 2015 at 3 pm. In preparation for the party and to ensure that every family we serve has a joyous holiday season, please consider donating to our annual toy drive starting Monday, October 5th, 2015 to support the children and siblings of the Grow Clinic.
Baby Steps NICU Follow Up Clinic at Boston Medical Center
The Baby Steps Clinic provides developmental evaluations and nutritional assessments of infants born prematurely or term infants that had a complicated newborn period. Similar to The Grow Clinic, Baby Steps is a multidisciplinary clinic staffed by a developmental/behavioral pediatrician, occupational therapists, dietitians, and family outreach advocates.
Families seen in the Baby Steps Clinic often face struggles similar to those faced by Grow Clinic families, including the cost of providing heating, food, and safe, stable housing for their medically fragile child and their siblings. With your donations and support, we can provide Baby Steps families with supplies that are essential to newborn development and nutrition and help families begin a healthy life for their babies.
Please also consider supporting the Baby Steps Clinic. In-kind donations, detailed in the link below, can be dropped-off following the same directions for Grow Clinic donations.
