On the last Friday of each month, our Colleagues pay $2 to a selected charity and are allowed to wear T-shirts for the day. This month, we’re supporting The Children’s Center Rehabilitation Hospital. The Children’s Center Rehabilitation Hospital is a private, non-profit hospital that offers 24-hour medical care, comprehensive rehabilitative therapies, respiratory care and special education. The state-of-the-art facility is home to four main areas of service: Complex Care, Pediatric Medical Rehabilitation, Pediatric Clinic and Outpatient Therapy Services. Assisting families with their challenges and questions is a significant part of the center’s treatment efforts, with parents considered an essential part of the team of caregivers. The goal for patients at The Children’s Center Rehabilitation Hospital is to be ready and equipped go home to their loving families. Each fall, Colleagues nominate organizations to receive proceeds from the next year’s monthly charity days. In addition to receiving proceeds from the charity day, different departments in the past have supported The Children’s Center Rehabilitation Hospital through personal donations and fundraising events such as bake sales. The American Fidelity Foundation also selected the group for its annual $25,000 Cameron Family Award in 2014. We are proud to be able to support the charities closest to the hearts of our Colleagues. What are some of your favorite charitable organizations?
