The Neighborhood Health Clinic is one of three charities that the fourth grade students at Calusa Park, Lely, Golden Terrace, Lake Park, and Royal Palm Elementary Schools can donate to during the 2011-2012 school year. If selected by the students, 100% of the student and community partner donations for that class will go directly to the Neighborhood Health Clinic. This is the fourth consecutive year the Clinic has been invited to participate in the program.

Beginning January 2, 2012 through February 10, 2012, students are encouraged to bring change and hold mini-fundraisers. Students raise … Read more...Read More
