There are items, other than monetary donations, the Shipley Clinic could use for our patients and families. We ALWAYS need new books. These books support our Reach Out and Read program. We try to assure that every home has a digital thermometer and every child has a toothbrush. Stickers are a great distraction and reward children for who have been vaccinated. These items are in constant need for replenishing.

Here at the clinic, we have no capacity to store food or clothing, but we keep a limited quantity of supplies and sample-sized items on hand for personal or hygienic use. These below items may be needed in infant and child sizes; for boys and girls. We only accept NEW/UNUSED items.
