Holmdel, NJ – Sylvia’s Children, a 501(c)3 that supports children orphaned by AIDS in Uganda, is pleased to announce a new partnership with ExpressCare Walk-in Medical Offices conveniently located inside your Shoprite store. Starting October 1, ExpressCare will donate $ .50 from every flu vaccine given this season to Sylvia’s Children. The vaccine will be offered through January.

ExpressCare teamed up with Sylvia’s Children after meeting its founder, Sylvia Allen, and learning about her efforts. Pat Dempsey, Vice President of Practice Services, says, “I had the pleasure of meeting Sylvia at several functions and was greatly impressed with the work she is doing with Sylvia’s Children. We wanted to assist Sylvia with her mission.” Dempsey continues, “ExpressCare would like to earmark the money generated by the flu vaccine fundraiser towards building a health clinic for the children at the Mbiriizi Primary School.” Allen, in her never-ending quest to help improve life for the children at the school, says “I was thrilled when Pat offered to do this fundraiser. People who are planning on being vaccinated against the flu can do so quickly and conveniently, and it’s benefiting a great cause!”

Flu vaccines are $30 each. ExpressCare accepts Medicare Part B for payment.
