The Benjamin Clark Foundation was founded following a dramatic increase in child death cases in 2013. The investigators of the Washoe County Medical Examiner's Office began making memory boxes for families following the death of a child.
The memory boxes contain a hand print, a foot print, and a lock of hair from the child, inside of a small tasteful box. The memory box provides the families with one last thing from their child.
The investigators paid for the boxes and supplies out of their own pockets. We have created The Benjamin Clark Foundation in order to provide the supplies for the investigators to continue their beautiful work.
