PediPlace, a Lewisville-based nonprofit pediatric clinic, aims to make healthcare a reality for every child. On Tuesday the CoServ Charitable Foundation (CCF) presented a $40,000 grant to help them achieve that goal.

The grant will fund treatment for illnesses, immunizations, hearing and vision screenings, asthma and newborn care, among other medical necessities.

PediPlace CEO and President Larry Robins thanked CCF for its contribution, citing a 2015 study that showed children on Medicaid who receive medical treatment become healthier adolescents. PediPlace is needed, he said, as the number of doctors accepting Medicaid patients continues to decline.

“Our goal is to increase the health of our children and their families by becoming their medical home,” Robins said. PediPlace charges for treatment on a sliding scale and turns no one away.

Since 2004, CCF has donated $278,000 in funds to treat the community’s children.

Funding for most CCF grants comes from CoServ members and customers through Operation Roundup, and the money can only be distributed within CoServ’s service territory. 

“The funds come from our Members and Customers who round up their bills,” said CoServ Director of Community Relations Vicki Sargent. “It’s an honor for us to facilitate their good will.”

North Texas Employees Shower New Moms with Supplies

indexKnowing life with a newborn baby is a big adjustment, North Texas Avnet Cares sought to make the transition a little smoother for new moms in need by collecting items for PediPlace, a nonprofit pediatric clinic and health services provider in Richardson, Texas, USA. Employees recently delivered a carload of items on the organization's wish list.

By the end of a four-month collection period, employees filled 31 bags with baby wipes, socks, rattles and many other items, which PediPlace distributes in gift bags to families who complete its 30-minute "Parents of Newborn Children" class.

Each year, PediPlace serves thousands of uninsured and underinsured children in five nearby cities by providing care at low fees, and North Texas Avnet Cares enjoyed contributing to their well-being. "Caring for those in need is a special thing to do and it is encouraging to see so many eager, heartfelt individuals willing to help PediPlace make so many kids happy and hopefully healthier," says Anita Hernandez, the financial operations associate who serves as North Texas Avnet Cares' media chairperson.
