You do not have to go far to hear stories of struggle it seems. Many Albertans are experiencing a stressful year, from lay-offs to rebuilding from natural disasters. In any time of challenge though, you need not look far to see the reciprocal community support and opportunities for positive change. Of course, if you can’t see the change, as Mahatma Gandhi would say, “Be the change…”.
Backstrong Health Group invites you to join us in a simple campaign that can create change for many. As a proud participant in this year’s Toasty Toes campaign, we join the Alberta College and Association of Chiropractors, the United Way, and Wood’s Homes in collecting 25000 pairs of socks. All donations will go towards shelters and programs across Alberta, supported by United Way and Wood’s Homes. Socks are the most requested item by shelters, yet are the least donated.
Donations will be accepted at both Northland and Quarry Park backstrong Health Group locations, Sept 1- October 1.
Help us warm the hearts (and feet!) of our community!
Never believe that a few caring people can’t change the world. For, indeed, that’s all who ever have. — Margaret Mead
