How to Help


Many of the children we see have very limited resources. Donations of new or gently used books, toys, or clothing can help. Donations of (unused!) baby diapers and infant formula can also be quite useful. Non-perishable food items like juice boxes and granola bars would also be appreciated.You may donate supplies through our Amazon Wishlist

Monetary donations can be made online through our donate page. FIGHT is a 501c non-profit organization.

Volunteers and Interns

We are very interested in patient engagement volunteers and interns (individuals who would engage, entertain and distract children so that their experience in the clinic can be as positive as possible. Patient engagement volunteers are particularly helpful when a medical provider needs to discuss a sensitive subject with a parent in which the child should not be involved. In these situations the volunteer would work with the child out of the exam room while the provider and parent can discuss the sensitive matter at hand. Email us at for more details.
