START is making one last push to end 2018 on a high note and head into the new year with momentum!
First, we have just launched our annual START Toy Drive, through which we aim to provide gifts for every child and grandchild of every patient at START. Last year, that meant over 600 individual gifts. This year, we are anticipating even more.
On top of our toy drive, we have also begun making plans to expand our newest program. Teen START is an outpatient adolescent mental health clinic, and in just over a year of operations, it has already reached its patient capacity. It’s even been drawing praise from throughout the New York medical community.
In light of these efforts, we now ask you to consider joining us by making a donation to START (many companies will also have policies to match employee gifts on this day, so if you are so moved as to donate, please also take the time to find out if you can double your gift via your employer).
Through START, you can end your 2018 by brightening another family’s holiday season and so much more, empowering us to continue our life-saving work over the year to come. Thank you for your consideration.
