Employees, participants, families and friends of NeuroRestorative participated in The MENTOR Network’s 3rd Annual National Volunteer Day on Saturday, April 25th, an event that brings together individuals from across The Network to lend a hand in their communities.
NeuroRestorative is a partner of The MENTOR Network, a national network of local health and human service providers offering an array of quality, community-based services to adults and children with intellectual and developmental disabilities, individuals with brain and spinal cord injuries and to youth facing emotional, behavioral and other medically complex challenges, as well as their families. This April NeuroRestorative programs in Florida, Illinois, Kentucky, Texas and Virginia participated in service projects at various parks, food banks and social service organizations as part of National Volunteer Day.
At NeuroRestorative Kentucky’s program in Georgetown, for example, employees, families and friends volunteered at Quest Farm, a provider of services and supports for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
“On Saturday, April 25th 2015, several of Georgetown’s staff members (along with their family members and friends) participated in The Mentor Network’s 3rd National Volunteer Day. Volunteers cleaned the craft room and woodshop and made it shine! The group did a wonderful job of representing NeuroRestorative and the Georgetown program,” said Jennifer Allen, Clinical Director of NeuroRestorative Kentucky’s program in Georgetown.
In Florida, individuals from NeuroRestorative volunteered at Advocates for World Health, a nonprofit organization that collects medical products and distributes them to relief agencies working in developing nations. The volunteers from NeuroRestorative sorted medical supplies and prepared them for distribution.
“I am proud to know that NeuroRestorative programs throughout the country gave back by lending a hand at various organizations during this year’s Volunteer Day. From sorting food for families in need to providing health kits to individuals in need, NeuroRestorative ‘s employees, participants and family members made a difference in the communities where we live and work,” said Bill Duffy, President, NeuroRestorative.
