Clinics Can Help, a local nonprofit that donates surplus durable medical equipment and supplies to financially needy children and adults, will be wrapping gifts at the Wellington Barnes & Noble store on Friday, Nov. 29 from 3 to 9 p.m.
The gift wrapping program allows selected nonprofits the chance to raise funds through a free, donation-only service to all Barnes & Noble shoppers. Nonprofits apply to participate in the program, which can raise hundreds of dollars for the chosen organization.
Clinics Can Help was the local charity selected for the biggest shopping day of the year. Shoppers cashing in on great Black Friday deals offered on all books, sundries and selected gift items, can take their purchases to the wrapping table, conveniently located by the exit door, to have gifts festively wrapped, and make a donation that goes directly towards helping those in the community who need it most.
“We are honored to have been selected to participate in this event,” said Owen O’Neill, executive director of Clinics Can Help. “We do all we can to help others in the community, and this is a great way to get to know some of our friends in Wellington. We hope many of the Black Friday shoppers stop by, let us wrap their gifts, and get to know a little bit more about Clinics Can Help.”
Clinics Can Help is a nonprofit organization based in Palm Beach County that helps children, adults and the elderly by redistributing surplus medical equipment and supplies to those in need. Through support of free clinics, providing equipment to nursing schools and the organization’s Lending Closet providing medical equipment to underserved patients, Clinics Can Help is helping to enhance healthcare in the community.
In the last 12 months, Clinics Can Help has donated durable medical equipment and supplies to more than 1,800 children and adults. The organization expanded to Belle Glade in September 2012 to further assist Palm Beach County residents in need.
