America's Charities | September 11, 2023

Child Health Day

First celebrated in 1929, Child Health Day was enacted by Congress as a day to raise awareness about the fundamental necessity for programs to protect and develop the health of the children of the United States. 

In recognition of #ChildHealthDay on October 2, 2023, America’s Charities is celebrating the following agents of change who we are proud to call our members. Supporting children facing life-threatening diseases, providing preventative healthcare to underserved youth, ensuring children have access to nutritious food, and more, these nonprofits are dedicated to providing a range of programs that address children’s health.

One of the most cost-efficient ways you can support these nonprofits is to donate to them via payroll deduction through your employer’s workplace giving program (Don’t have a program? Click here to have your employer contact our team.)
