Thank you so much to all of our amazing donors!

September 19, 2023

Thank you to so many for helping us make this herculean transition a bit smoother! Our new location is wonderful, and we are fully up and running in a short amount of time thanks to our amazing staff, your support, and hard-working volunteers! Our fresh and non-perishable food pantry and period hygiene pantries are fully stocked! Our new dispensary is over twice our previous size and so conducive to our pharmacy team doing their best work for our patients! Our waiting room is so spacious and welcoming, and our staff is enjoying our first REAL breakroom - EVER!

As we also start work on our 30th anniversary celebration, we are so grateful for your ongoing support which allows us to help so many across our region!

Almost to our $9,000 goal! Less than 2 weeks to donate!

August 14, 2023

Getting settled in our new location as our nurse, Betsy, and our new Patient Care/Medical Assistant staff, Olivia, welcome patients to the new vitals room! Our waiting room is larger and more welcoming than ever, and our fresh food pantry is starting to burst with summer harvests! As a direct result of the incredible outpouring of generosity for this project, we reached our initial goal of $7,000 quickly so stretched to a new goal of $8,000. We reached that new goal in record time so have stretched again to a goal of $9,000! With 10 days left, please help us achieve this milestone. Thank you to everyone who has donated already and helped us get this far.

We're Unpacked!

July 31, 2023

What a great day! Due to everyone's efforts, we were able to have our first full clinic in our new home just a few days after the actual move! Boxes unpacked, exam rooms and pharmacy ready! HUGE thank you to our amazing, Small but Mighty staff, pharmacy leadership, and student volunteers for getting us back up and running with minimal downtime (we won't show you the "kitchen sink" room with boxes still to be unpacked!) and most importantly, minimal disruption to patient care! Thank you for supporting our patient and moving needs! There's still time to donate to help us reach our goal! If you have already donated, thank you for your generosity. 

Choose a giving level


Volunteer Support

The clinic is scheduling numerous sessions for volunteers to help us pack and unpack! Your donation will help us provide food and beverages for dedicated folks!


Patient Transportation Support

Many of our patients take public transportation, or we subsidize transport, to their appointments. Your support allows us to book one round trip taxi ride, or provide 20 bus tickets, for our patients who struggle significantly with transportation needs.


Stock an Exam Room

Essential supplies like gloves, thermometer covers, tongue depressors, and exam table paper are used in every patient visit. Help keep these small but essential supplies stocked in our patient exam rooms, which will be larger in our new space!


New Break Room Supplies

The Clinic will have its first official break room in its history! Please help us outfit this space for our wonderful, dedicated staff and volunteers! This support will help us update our coffee and tea machine, and stock snacks, coffee, and beverages for the people who make it all possible!


New Location Advertising

In the months leading up to its move, the clinic has created flyers (in multiple languages) that have been given to all patients with their After Visit Summary. These have information about the new location (with a neighborhood map and photo, parking options, and bus routes). Additionally, not all patients the clinic serves have reliable phone access or have appointments too far out to have received a flyer during their appointment, so we created post card versions that will be mailed to all patients and some partners, and other key collaborators to alert them to the new location.


New Pharmacy Refrigerator

Since the pandemic, Birmingham has seen a significant increase in the number of patients with chronic disease, particularly insulin-dependent diabetic patients. As a result, the program will be ordering a larger refrigerator for its pharmacy to help accommodate, and properly store, any insulin and biological medications the program obtains from the Pharmaceutical Assistance Programs.


Moving Costs and Signage

One of the most significant expenses the program/clinic will incur is for physical moving company costs as well as new, ADA Compliant, and required, signage throughout its new location.
