The cdtc SUNFLOWERS is a group of dedicated, like minded individuals who “give back” and brighten the lives of children and their families. Participation and support of our group directly enhance the mission of Children’s Diagnostic & Treatment Center. Established in 1997 as a Florida 501(c)3 corporation under the name The Children’s Resource Group, Inc., this original group evolved over the years into an organization of almost 100 men and women. In 2004 the name was changed to CDTC Sunflower Circle of Friends, Inc. Our mission is to provide support to patients and their families after their medical needs are met by CDTC. The programs we began include providing canvas totes filled with basic needs for every new mom; the food pantry called “Bare Necessities” gives out over 850 pounds of food every month to needy families; the Primary Care Center receives almost $45,000 every year from our fund raisers. Thanks to the Children’s Library, every new patient receives their own books to read at home. Hundreds of books from school drives and other donations keep this project going strong. Moms are treated twice a year to a new handbag or piece of jewelry (again from generous donations from the community).
We need your help and support to keep our mission alive.
