Advanced Therapy and Sports Medicine is celebrating National Physical Therapy Month in October by organizing a community food drive. The Give Back Community Food Drive will run from Oct. 1 to 31.
All food collected will be donated to the Community Food Bank of Barton County, which is in dire need of food supplies, even operating on a day-to-day basis depending upon food stores.
"We want to celebrate the month by helping to give back to the community for its support of our business the past 25 years," said Advanced Therapy owner Teresa Malone, PT. "We’ve been told there is a great need at the food bank, so we are confident that this drive is an effective way for each and every one of us to answer the call of help from our community."
Participants don’t have to be patients to get involved, explained Malone. They can drop off non-perishable food items to Advanced Therapy, 1514 K-96, during the work week. Hours of operation are 8 a.m. to noon and 1-6 p.m. Monday through Thursday; and on Friday from 8 a.m. to noon, and from 1-3 p.m.
Contact Advanced Therapy if you have questions, 620-792-7868, or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Give Back Community Food Drive is happening simultaneously during October in Larned and Hays at Advanced Therapy’s partner locations. Those in the Larned or Hays areas can drop off their food items at Progressive Therapy & Sports Medicine, Larned, or at Progressive Physical Therapy, Hays.
