In an effort to give back to the communities we serve, Therapy Center launched a company-wide giving back campaign at the beginning of 2015. We asked all of our employee teams to select a charity or non-profit organization and do something to benefit that organization. With teams all over the State, Therapy Center’s goal is to help as many communities and organizations as possible. We are proud to say that our employees have done a fantastic job so far, and are excited to see what the rest of the year has in store!
Our team at Bayou Chateau Nursing Center participated in a giving back activity they called “Knitting for the Kids”. They chose to give back to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital by knitting blankets and invited the residents to assist the team in giving back to children facing cancer and life-threatening disease.
Our teams in Avoyelles parish worked together to put on an extremely successful blood drive in February. By partnering with LifeShare Blood Center, Therapy Center teams were able to receive thirty-seven donations! The blood drive was so successful that the teams plan on hosting a blood drive with LifeShare at least once a year.
In an effort to assist the residents at the Valley View Health Care facility, our team collected and donated clothes to those in need. The event was well received and the residents were extremely appreciative. The team at Valley View intends on continuing this donation process for years to come.
Our outpatient clinic in Marksville, Lemoine Therapy, decided to join in the “Giving Back Campaign” by becoming an official drop site for the Food Bank of Central Louisiana. Our team put the donation box in their front lobby and collected non-perishable food items for the entire month of May. The food drive was extremely successful, with a donation that overflowed the donation box. The Food Bank of Central Louisiana was ecstatic when we drove up with a car full of food items. Our team was very happy with the turnout, and rightfully so. They plan to continue giving back in the future!
In conjunction with an announcement of its new facility, the Carencro clinic put on a blood drive in partnership with United Blood Services. This blood drive was also a tremendous success! Therapy Center’s drive had an original goal of twelve donations. The drive exceeded that goal with a total of twenty-one donations, saving a total of sixty-three lives! Therapy Center is hosting another blood drive in August, and has high expectations about the turnout.
We are so proud of all of the teams that have participated so far this year. Everyone has made a great difference in the community.
