Ways to Give to Bradley Hospital

Christopher Benedick Adopt A Family Program

Big Orange TeamThe Christopher Benedick Adopt A Family program has operated annually since Dr. Benedick’s passing in 2004 and has benefitted hundreds of needy families. Given the economic hardship faced by many of our patients and their families, we hope you will join the Bradley Hospital Department of Social Work in a special fundraising effort to help us provide families with basic necessities as well as gift cards to empower them to do their own holiday shopping.

You can make a restricted gift to the Bradley Hospital Adopt a Family Program online here. Choose “Adopt A Family” from the drop-down menu.

Alternatively, checks payable to Bradley Hospital can be mailed to:
Bradley Hospital Foundation
P.O. Box H Providence, RI 02901.
Please write “Adopt a Family” in the memo to restrict your gift.

Another way to be generous is by making a donation in honor of a special person or in memory of a loved one, just as we have named this program in memory of Dr. Chris Benedick, whom you can read about below. We will send a holiday card to the honoree recognizing the contribution made in their name. What better way to give to families and their children than by honoring a loved one and/or a special person this Holiday Season. This service is also available online!

Of course, if you’d like to organize a gift drive to collect new hats, gloves and other basic necessities for adults and children, please call Melissa Noons at 432-1535 to arrange a delivery.

The social work staff distributes gifts to families by mid-December each year. We encourage gifts to the fund year-round to insure the ongoing success of the Christopher Benedick Adopt A Family Program.

We thank you once again for touching the lives of many with your past generosity, and hope that you will spread the word to help us spread the joy to many more families this year.
