Each year Texas Orthopedics employees donate to a local Austin charity during the holidays. This year, we are collecting donations for the Center for Child Protection. The Center for Child Protection is the first stop for children who are suspected victims of abuse and for children who have witnessed a violent crime. An accredited children’s advocacy center serving Travis County, children are referred to the Center exclusively by law enforcement and Child Protective Services, and each child is brought to the Center by a caregiver for a recorded interview, forensic medical exam, counseling, and crisis intervention. All services are provided at no charge.
Each Texas Orthopedics office has a piggy bank to collect spare change. At the end of December, we will count the change and purchase items off the Center for Child Protection wish list with the money we have raised. Many of the items needed are safety related items, such as car seats, baby gates, outlet covers and cabinet locks.
