There’s no better way to celebrate Physical Therapy Month than by doing a fun service project. Earlier this month we assembled our team and made 16 blankets to donate to a local organization that supports children in need.
D.A. Blodgett has been helping children by preventing abuse and neglect since 1887. Whether a child is living in their home, foster care, with their adoptive family, or in residential treatment, D.A. Blodgett is there to restore their happiness, dignity, and belief that their dreams aren’t out of reach. Their mission is so powerful, we felt genuinely compelled to donate our service project to their organization this year.
“I love that we’re able to help a local organization that helps so many kids and families in times of crisis. We may not be able to hug all those families in need but these blankets can be a close substitute.” – Lisa Otterbein-Bolek, Physical Therapist
National Physical Therapy Month was designed to raise public awareness of the many health benefits offered by physical therapy, to people across the United States and around the world. We love using this month as an opportunity to serve others. In addition, we enjoy getting our team together and giving our time to a worthwhile cause.
“Being an adoptive parent myself, I know how instrumental this organization is for our foster kids here in Michigan, many times these kids don’t have many belongings so to be able to provide them with a new, warm blanket is something I know they will cherish.” – David Sefton, Physical Therapist & Area Director
“A blanket serves as not just a source of comfort to many children, but as a source of love and security. To be able to provide kids with these feelings is something I’m honored to be a part of. Thank you, D.A. Blodgett, for allowing us to serve you and the many children you support!” – Shelby Ruiter, PC
Thank you to D.A.Blodgett for allowing us to be a part of your wonderful organization. This was truly a heart-warming experience for our entire team.
