As the year draws to a close and we pause to reflect on the past twelve months, it is only natural that we think about those who are less fortunate than we are, and wonder what we can do to help them.  Every small kindness makes a huge difference for low-income families with young children.

Children of Bellevue, Inc. at Bellevue Hospital Center sees to very specific needs at this time of year.  If you would like to make a meaningful gift to a child at Bellevue, please consider one or more of the following items.
