The Coordinating Center Participates in #GivingTuesday to Help Families in Need


For the second year in a row, The Coordinating Center will be participating in #GivingTuesday, a national day of philanthropy driven through social media channels.

All donations made on The Coordinating Center’s website,, on December 2 will go to the Family Resource Fund. The fund was originally begun by co-workers who were concerned about infants leaving hospitals who did not have the necessary cribs and nursery items. Over the years, the Family Resource Fund has evolved and now provides families with complex health needs and disabilities with assistance in purchasing one item or service, including medical equipment, car seats, mattresses for children, eye glasses, and assistive technology. In 2013, The Center provided more than $9,500 for items or services to families through the Family Resource Fund.
