Just in time for Thanksgiving, East Penn Foot and Ankle Associates and Robbins Rehabilitation are teaming up to feed the hungry and homeless of the Lehigh Valley. For the second consecutive year, EPFAA and Robbins will donate an estimated one hundred and fifty turkeys to Lehigh Valley homeless shelters and food banks.
From now through November 21, 2012, for every new patient seen at Robbins Rehabilitation or East Penn Foot and Ankle, one Jaindl’s turkey will be purchased and donated to feed local hungry and homeless families.
In 2011, the first year of this event, a total of 174 turkeys were delivered to three homeless shelters in the Lehigh Valley. This year the beneficiaries are the Sixth Street Shelter in Allentown, the Salvation Army of Bethlehem, and New Bethany Ministries in Bethlehem. The day before Thanksgiving, employees and owners of Robbins and East Penn Foot & Ankle will personally deliver the turkeys to the shelters.
“Roughly fifteen percent of the Lehigh Valley lives below the poverty line and many of these families depend on shelters and food banks for their daily meals and other necessities”, says Dr Adam Teichman, Senior Operating Partner at East Penn Foot And Ankle. “We’re humbled by how generously the Lehigh Valley has given to us and this is our small way of giving something back.”
Travis Robbins, owner of Robbins Rehabilitation continues, “Helping the community is a big part of who we are as a company. It’s why we organized this event last year, and decided to make it an annual event for our company.”
East Penn Foot & Ankle Associates provides advanced, innovative and compassionate foot & ankle care for the entire family in eastern Pennsylvania and western New Jersey.
Robbins Rehabilitation is the leading physical therapy practice in the Lehigh Valley, dedicated to providing the best physical therapy experience for their patients.
