Christopher Benedick Adopt a Family Program
The Christopher Benedick Adopt a Family program has operated annually since Dr. Benedick’s passing in 2004 and has benefitted hundreds of needy families. Given the economic hardship faced by many of Bradley's patients and their families, we hope you will join the Bradley Hospital department of social work in a special fundraising effort to help us provide families with basic necessities as well as gift cards to empower them to do their own holiday shopping.
The social work staff distributes gifts to families by mid-December each year. We encourage gifts to the fund year-round to insure the ongoing success of the Christopher Benedick Adopt a Family Program.
You can make a restricted gift to the Bradley Hospital Adopt a Family Program online. Choose “Adopt a Family” from the drop-down menu.
Donate by Mail
Checks payable to "Bradley Hospital" can be mailed to:
Bradley Hospital Foundation
P.O. Box H Providence, RI 02901
Please write “Adopt a Family” in the memo to restrict your gift.
Donate in Honor of a Loved One
Another way to be generous is by making a donation in honor of a special person or in memory of a loved one, just as we have named this program in memory of Chris Benedick, MD, whom you can read about on this page. We will send a holiday card to the honoree recognizing the contribution made in their name. What better way to give to families and their children than by honoring a loved one and/or a special person this holiday season. This service is also available online.
If you would like more information about this program, please call Michele Gessman, LICSW, Department of Social Work, firstname.lastname@example.org or 401-432-1389.
