The Henrietta Weill Memorial Child Guidance Clinic is a non-profit mental health facility for children and families. We have been serving the Kern County communities for over 74 years now and are the largest children’s provider in the county.
One of the special projects we do for our clients is provide a happy holiday time for the children we serve here at the Clinic. We provide Thanksgiving baskets for our families in need and at Christmas time we provide gifts, trees and food baskets for as many clients as the funds allow. This program runs basically on community involvement and donations from our vendors and community partners. As a non-profit our funds are limited so we reach out to enlist sponsors for our families.
Due to the community's generosity during last year’s holiday season, we provided Thanksgiving and Christmas baskets for Kern County families, totaling over 350 persons. The generosity not only helped those families, but also was a display to the community as to what it truly means to have the spirit of giving.
I want to assure you that we are trying to help only those clients who have the greatest need. If we are fortunate to find more sponsors than families, we will expand our list to include single gift or food items to add to a client’s holidays. We also accept monetary contributions for use in fulfilling the families’ holiday wishes.
As a 501(c)(3) organization, the Henrietta Weill Memorial Child Guidance Clinic (The Clinic) (Federal ID No. 95 1643391) relies heavily on community support to fund special projects which otherwise may not be possible.
I have enclosed some information that we send out to our local sponsors for review.
