Help Us Help Others

baby Lucas

My name is Kim Hershberger, I am hosting a fundraiser/ baby drive for Bella Medical Clinic in honor of heart month.

I started my journey with Bella in June 2019. I was a single mother of a 14yr old daughter when I found out I was pregnant with Lucas. Bella Medical Clinic provided support with my pregnancy. I received services such as an ultrasound and pregnancy information. At that time Lucas received his very first baby blanket. All services at Bella Medical Clinic are completely Free! Such as medical pregnancy testing, obstetrical ultrasounds, material support, parenting advice, emotional support and so much more! 

Why heart month? During my pregnancy, I learned my son was going to be born with a complicated rare heart condition called Hypo plastic left heart syndrome. This condition requires multiple open heart surgeries in the first few years of life! The amount of support I have received from Bella Medical Clinic is immeasurable! I would like to raise awareness of these resources for women and families in our community. All donations will go directly back to the people of Oshkosh!

Material Drives
You may organize collection drives on our behalf. At this time, and due to client needs, we encourage groups to do new material item drives (instead of diaper drives) and collect wipes, new clothes, small equipment items, etc.

Blanket Class
Cozy baby blankets are fun to make and a cherished gift to a new mom or dad. We would love for you to organize a blanket/ quilt making class and give the blankets to us! Please consider this fundraiser as a way to pass on love and warmth to moms and dads in need.

Bottles for Bella
This is a perfect fundraiser for a church. We give you bottles to distribute and bulletin inserts to explain how to fill the bottles with cash, coins, or checks. This fundraiser is typically used around Sanctity of Life Month in January, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, and for Respect Life Month in October but can be done any time of the year. The church collects the bottles at the end of the drive, counts the proceeds, and delivers us a check. You can also bring us the filled bottles, and we’ll do the rest!

Christmas Banquet and Baby Baskets
Host a Christmas party and invite guests to bring a small gift for a baby. Gifts can be assembled into baskets for a special holiday surprise for new moms and dads.

Support us by purchasing items like you would on an everyday basis, whether it’s baby items, a birthday gift, or household goods, through Amazon. The Amazon Smile Foundation donates 0.5% of your purchases to the organization of your choice.
