Pediatrics Cartersville Gives Back to Good Neighbor

Harbin Clinic Pediatrics Cartersville never rests while caring for their patients, and they won’t hit the snooze button on September 28, 2019 at the inaugural 2019 Good Neighbor Bed Race & Family Festival.

Pediatrics Cartersville makes it a priority to support the families in their community. Through the Good Neighbor Bed Race, Pediatrics Cartersville has pledged to raise at least $2,500 for the Good Neighbor Homeless Shelter in Cartersville, Ga.

Taking place at Dellinger Park Football Field & Track, the Bed Race encourages teams to arrive in costume and be prepared with a theme. Teams will race a decorated bed as quickly as possible in hopes of winning the “Checkered Flag” award. Good Neighbors will also award the “Spectator’s Choice” to the team who raises the most in donations.

Help Pediatrics Cartersville exceed their fundraising goal and provide beds for homeless children in their community. Donations can be received in the following ways:

     - Via check, made payable to the Good Neighbor Homeless Shelter
     - Via Harbin Clinic Pediatrics Cartersville Giving Page.
     - Via text, message [HARBINPEDS19] and the amount to 41444 

All donations are 100% tax deductible, and the Good Neighbor Homeless Shelter sends out letters in January of each year to acknowledge donations made for tax preparation purposes.

Why donate?

Money pledged to the Harbin Clinic Pediatrics team goes directly to Good Neighbor and helps provide shelter, education, and counseling for homeless children and families in the community. Harbin Clinic pediatricians not only care about the families walking through their clinic doors, but they have a deep responsibility to enhance the lives of all families in Cartersville and Northwest Georgia.

Good Neighbor Homeless Shelter provides men, women and families with temporary shelter and physical, emotional and spiritual support. They provide shelter for nearly 70 people each day, 40 of those being children. In 2019, Good Neighbor will help more than 600 people find jobs and secure new places to call their home. Their Transitional Housing Program provides a path for limited income families to get back into their communities and care for their families. This two-year program helps individuals secure a job and take classes at local community colleges to prepare for living-wage employment and improve their children’s future.

Help Harbin Clinic Pediatrics Cartersville care for their community and provide a good night’s sleep for kids!
