October is National Physical Therapy Month and Advance Therapy and Sports Medicine is celebrating by hosting its annual food drive for the Great Bend Food Bank. If anyone would like to contribute, stop by the office, 3715 10th in Great Bend, and drop off any food items in the lobby. “We would be forever grateful and we know that many others in our community will be grateful as well,” said owner Teresa Malone.
