Pediatric Associates and the Pediatric Associates Foundation recently raised $13,000 for the Texas Diaper Bank to help support the youngest victims of Hurricane Harvey.
Pediatric Associates employees raised $6,500 in just a few days via online donations, and the funds raised were generously doubled by a dollar-for-dollar match by the Pediatric Associates Foundation. The Texas Diaper Bank continues distributing all donated items to shelters that are housing evacuees and other organizations that need diapers in the wake of Hurricane Harvey.
As the devastation of Hurricanes Irma and Maria hit us closer to home, the organization acted quickly to give the community options to give back. Pediatric Associates and the Pediatric Associates Foundation are currently collecting monetary donations to provide basic necessities for the children and babies who have been affected by Hurricanes Irma and Maria. The dollars raised will be split to support those in Monroe County, Puerto Rico and the Caribbean and distributed through United Way of Miami-Dade’s Operation Helping Hands. Currently, more than $3,900 has been raised. The URL is www.YouCaring.com/PAGivesBack.
South Floridians have the opportunity to donate supplies by dropping them at any Pediatric Associates location. The supplies will be delivered directly to Puerto Rico. Supplies needed include diapers, wipes, baby food, formula, Pedialyte, insect repellent, baby wash and baby shampoo.
