The Henrietta Weill Memorial Child Guidance Clinic is a non-profit mental health facility for children and families. We are proud to have serve the Kern County for over 72 years and are the largest children’s provider in the county.
One of the special projects we do for our clients is provide a special 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 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.
Traditionally we provide breakfast for the delivery and shopping volunteers and for our wrapping volunteers we provide lunch. This year we have decided to ask for wrapping paper sponsors and food sponsors. We also provide trees for all the families in need and are looking for possible sponsors to assist in providing trees for families. These sponsors will allow us to keep some of the overhead costs down.
Due to the community's generosity during last year’s holiday season, we provided Thanksgiving and Christmas baskets for Clinic families, totaling over 285 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 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.
I have enclosed some information that we send out to our local sponsors for review.
