Our company has always felt strongly about the importance of giving back to the community. Over the years we have worked with several charitable organizations.
We participated in the first Food Pantry food drive. It has become a biannual event in our offices for our doctors and staff to donate services in exchange for donations. Many times by the end of the week the reception room is filled with shopping carts full of food. Trucks have been needed to take it all to the Food Pantry. Every year we are one of the top contributors and have won the award many times as the top contributor per employee. This is all in thanks to our generous patients.
Kids Day America began several years ago. It is dedicated to child safety and involves ID cards, spinal checks and much more. This event has grown so large, we finally had to move it from our Newark office to the Indian Mound Mall. The past several years we have had several hundred kids participate each year.
Some of the other organizations we have been proud to work with are Big Brothers/Big Sister, LEADS, donating our services to local high school athletes, school supply drives for local schools, local school talks about back safety and nutrition, local library drives, Red Cross and raising money for calling cards for our troops in Iraq.
