SBCHC collects items for patients including:
Baby shower items for our "Becoming a Mom” program participants:
Diapers (size newborn), baby wipes, baby powder, baby bathing supplies, baby lotion, sunblock, and diaper rash ointment. No used or open items can be accepted. SBCHC enjoys accepting homemade gifts like blankets and onesies. SBCHC can accept gently used clothing, towels, hats, and swaddling blankets. Unfortunately, SBCHC cannot accept and safety equipment such as car seats, high chairs, cribs, and bouncers/swings.
School supplies for our annual Back-to-School Vaccine Drive, including:
Annually, SBCHC hosts a Back-to-School Vaccine Drive. At the event kids receive free vaccines and a backpack filled with new school supplies. SBCHC accepts supplies for the event year round. SBCHC is in need of backpacks, spiral notebooks, copy paper, construction paper, binders, backpacks, glue sticks, school glue, crayons, washable Crayola markers, erasers, #2 pencils, 4x6 index cards, map pencils, scissors, hand sanitizer, tissues, and fun items for the classroom.
New toys (still in their original packaging) for pre-K to 10 year old children for our annual Holiday Toy Drive.
Every year, SBCHC collaborates with local school districts to distribute toys to underserved kids just in time for the holidays. Through outreach events in years past we have given gifts to over 1,000 families. Please donate new toys for our toy drive at any time throughout the year. Also, come wrap with us! We always need volunteers for our holiday events!
Books and Read-A Loud Videos
SBCHC is a proud participant in Reach Out and Read ( logo Here). This program fosters
literacy during early childhood checkups by giving parents of infants books to build their home libraries. There are many ways to donate!
· Donate any book for distribution- we will find a way!
· Donate new, baby books. Board books ( hard covers) are best for our little teethers.
· Donate bilingual books. SBCHC’s population is diverse; help us diversify our library!
· Make a read aloud video for our website and literacy programs ( example here)
· Host a book Drive ( toolkit here)
· Donate dollars. We support Reach Out and Read through the purchase of deeply discounted books through their literacy partners to help families build their at-home libraries.
Make a monetary contribution
With your help, we will be able to continue providing the best possible healthcare to our patients.
We are always looking for volunteers to assist with promoting our health center services and programs. All volunteers must fill out a volunteer application and undergo a background check.
Our highest need areas are in special events and outreach, specifically for our Spring and Fall health fairs. At these events, you may greet guests, assist with set-up and tear-down, pass out educational materials or help with crowd control depending on your preference.
If you are a student organization or Corporation looking for a group volunteer opportunity we welcome groups that are interested in gardening, hosting food and toy drives, or performing maintenance at our facilities, helping with events, and more.
If you are a medical supply or equipment distributor and you would like to make a donation, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
For all other inquiries, including clarification on what we can accept or arrange a drop-off, please email Gerard Peperone, Chief Development Officer at email@example.com.
