Support Circle Medical Clinics gives thousands of diapers during coronavirus emergency

Last week, Support Circle distributed more than 1,500 diapers to patients in need, due to shortages stemming from coronavirus hoarding.  And this week, we have another 1,500 to give out.  We reached out to over 100 patients and heard from moms who cannot find diapers or wipes for their children in the grocery stores.  We are delighted to use the on-hand supplies we had in our clinics prior to the coronavirus emergency to provide relief during this unprecedented time.  We will provide diapers and wipes to our patients until we run out.

One of the dads, picking up diapers and wipes, told our patient advocate, Jackie: “Thank you so much!  You were there for us in the beginning, when things were so scary.  And now this!  How do we give back?”  Jackie shared with him that everything we give has been donated to us by our steadfast supporters.

The organization has had to make cuts in staffing because of the postponement of our annual fundraising benefit, due to local stay at home orders.  However, Support Circle’s medical clinics remain open by appointment to care for patients, as they are facing critical health decisions that cannot be postponed.  The clinics are taking additional coronavirus precautions, including sanitation and screening measures, to protect patients and clinic personnel.

Patients may call or text Support Circle’s clinic line at 888.252.1822 to schedule an appointment.
