The Limelight: Plano Children's Medical Clinic

Plano Children’s Medical Clinic was founded in Collin County in 1991. Through the vision of a pediatrician and a school nurse, children were seen two nights a week in a small house provided by First Baptist Church of Plano. The organization has now grown to a full-time clinic that now sees over 200 children per week.

The clinic sees children from low-income families and foster homes, who are on Medicaid, CHIP, or have no insurance, and children with special needs. It is their mission to provide high-quality, primary medical care for all children in need.

How can you help? Financial donations are very much appreciated. While the clinic receives minimal funds from the State of Texas for Medicaid reimbursement, the funds are not enough to cover operational costs. Donations from individuals, clubs, foundations and companies are instrumental in ensuring that the clinic is able to serve the needs of the children.

Here are some ways your financial donation can make a difference:
$25 antibotics for 4 children $50 sick visit for 1 child
$100 well-child exam for 1 child
$250 0ne-month supply of asthma medication for 1 child
$500 well-child exams for baby’s 1st year
$1,000 sick visits for 20 Children

Other donations that the clinic accepts:
Diapers, Formula, Baby Wipes, Baby Toiletries, Baby Clothes, Baby Blankets, New Car Seats (Infant and Toddler), Car Booster Seats

Digital Thermometers, Baby, Children and Adult Tylenol (or Generic Brand) and Advil (or Generic Ibuprofen), Children’s Clothing, Blankets and sleeping bags, Children’s Books and Toys

Gift Cards to Walmart, Target, any grocery store to be given to a family in case of extreme emergencies
