I will help!

This year, nothing about going back to school is normal.

Maria, a fourth grader at Port Houston Elementary School, and Duante, a first grader at Scroggins Elementary, are starting school remotely on Sept. 8th with the hope that they will be able to be back in class by mid-October. Their families are struggling to adjust.

The ongoing state of uncertainty and change this school year is really tough on the health of children, parents, and teachers. It hits young Vecino Health Center patients like Maria and Duante especially hard because their families have already been impacted by the coronavirus more than most.

Annual checkups are more important than ever

When Maria and Duante come in for checkups with Dr. Villareal and Dr. Saavedra at Vecino's Airline Children's Clinic, they'll get head-to-toe exams, developmental screenings, vaccinations, and flu shots. They will also receive a Back-to-School Kit that includes a classroom-quality headset and microphone for distance learning, along with a packet of school supplies and masks.

The free headset and other school supplies kids receive at their checkups will help relieve some of the extra financial burdens on their families. The Kits also provide an incentive to make health checkups a priority.

If anything in the routine checkup is physically, emotionally, or behaviorally concerning, the issues will be addressed by Vecino's health care professionals early, when they are most treatable. There is little if any cost to families for the exams because they are covered by Medicaid or other insurance, or affordably provided at a discount to those who don't qualify for insurance. Our primary commitment is to our patients' health.

Here's how you can help

Vecino is equipping Maria, Duante, and 1,000 other children for the school year with Back-to-School Kits as part of their back-to-school checkups. With your help, we are raising money to cover the costs of the kits. Contribute today, and you'll be ensuring that all children who come in for a checkup will receive valuable tools with which to start the school year. You'll also be helping ensure that they are getting a healthy start and that potential illness and developmental delays are identified and treated early.

Help these super kids build resilience and health

Kids are dealing with extra uncertainties this school year, and they deserve all the support we can give them to build the resilience and health needed for these changing times. Every child is a super kid at Vecino Health Centers, and we love them all. Help us keep them healthy by ensuring every one of them receives a Back-to-School Kit, including a headset for home learning, with their checkup.

With a donation of $36, you'll be providing three children with Back-to-School Kits at their checkups! $60 will provide five children with Kits, and $144 means 12 kids will receive Kits.

One hundred percent of your gift will cover the costs of essential Back-to-School Kits being provided to children ages 3 to 13 with their Well Check Exams at Vecino's Airline Children's Clinic and Denver Harbor Family Clinic. It may also help cover health care costs for children of families who have become unemployed and insured by the pandemic.
