Partnership for Children’s BIG IDEA is making sure each child living with a life-threatening illness in our community has access to the medical care necessary to treat their condition and live their healthiest life possible by providing transportation services to medical appointments. Since there are no children’s specialty hospitals in our local community, children have to travel hours to the Bay Area for medical care. This year we are working with almost 200 children and have already provided over 400 rides, as well as gas assistance for over 1,000 medical appointments! Our numbers are increasing each year!
Your donation supports the cost of rides and gas assistance for medical appointments for children living with a serious, life-threatening condition age birth through 21 years living in our community. Our compassionate drivers pick up children and families from their home, drive them to the appointment, and take them safely back home. Gas assistance ensures that families aren’t having to choose between necessities like food and shelter, or gas to get their child to critical medical treatment.
Last year, the Monterey County Gives! Campaign matched generous donations to Partnership for Children at 12.7%. Today, you can greatly expand your gift by donating to Partnership for Children through the Monterey County Gives! campaign.
