The Kiwanis Pediatric Trauma Center Foundation, Inc., is one of three KPTC programs operating in the New York District of Kiwanis. The foundation supports pediatric trauma efforts at the Cohen Children's Medical Center as well as programs throughout the area to protect the safety of children and to improve the ability of local emergency medical services response teams.
Each year we reach out to all our Local Kiwanis Clubs to ask for continued financial assistance in order to support the Kiwanis Pediatric Trauma Center Foundation's mission in reducing pediatric trauma related death and injuries of our young children.
It's YOUR Club's annual gift of $250 that helps to maintain our world class facility at North Shore-LIJ's Cohen Children's Medical Center in New Hyde Park and Stony Brook Children's Hospital.
The 2017 Annual Campaign is under way. More information is available.
If your Kiwanis club would like to have a presentation on the KPTC program, contact KPTC Foundation members for a program which will include an 11-minute video on the program. To make arrangements, contact Foundation President Joe Corace, (917) 282-9498.
The Cohen Children's Medical Center, one of the hospitals supported by the Kiwanis Pediatric Trauma Foundation, has supplied a list of toys and toy donation guidelines as we approach the holiday season.
