Henry Schein has donated more than $80,000 in health supplies and equipment to the Children’s Aid Society to support 5 health centers located in high-need communities throughout New York City. The donation included hearing test kits, HIV test kits, dental radiography equipment, and other healthcare supplies. Three of the health centers are located in Manhattan, with one in Staten Island, and the other in the Bronx.
“We are extremely grateful to Henry Schein for its generous donation to our healthcare centers, which ensure children and youth have access to high-quality medical, dental, and mental health services,” said Children’s Aid Society president and CEO Phoebe Boyer. “These supplies and equipment will surely enrich our health services in our school- and community-based health centers in some of New York City’s most under-resourced communities, offering critical improvements to our service delivery.”
The Children’s Aid Society addresses the needs of underserved children and their families at more than 40 locations in New York City and Westchester County, providing children with access to healthcare, academic support, extracurricular activities, and college and job preparatory training programs. It also provides a range of family services, including prenatal counseling, housing assistance, and domestic violence counseling.
“We at Henry Schein are pleased to support the Children’s Aid Society in its efforts to expand access to medical and oral healthcare for underserved children and families throughout New York City,” said Stanley M. Bergman, chairman of the board and CEO of Henry Schein. “This donation does more than help this organization grow its capacity to provide a range of health services. It enhances its ability to help create healthier, happier, and stronger communities.”
