NUTTER FORT, W.Va.– An office of a regional chiropractor is contributing to homeless veterans this year for the holidays in Harrison County.
The Chiropractic Care Center is doing a drive for veterans who are exiting homelessness by providing basics like health and cleaning products, pots, pans, and more.
Chiropractic Assistant Teth Peiffley specified they decided as a team to do this project so they could get the neighborhood included.
“We have such a big client base, and there are incredible patients. We always wish to do something to assist in the neighborhood, especially during these times,” said Peiffley.
Peiffley discussed when a Veteran exits homelessness there only offering the house itself and enter the home with just the clothes on their backs.
“Everybody having a bumpy ride however particularly with people who are homeless,” explained Peiffley. “Unfortunately, there's not a great deal of federal government help right now, especially with everything happening with everybody entering a new house and having what they need to begin.”
The Chiropractic Care Center plans to provide the products on December 20, 2020, at the VA Hospital to one of their clients that work as a social employee for the homeless.
The Chiropractic Care Center is gathering items from now until December 18, 2020 at their Bridgeport and Nutter Fort places throughout their company hours.
The Bridgeport workplace is open Monday-Friday from 7 a.m.– 6 p.m. and the Nutter Fort office is open Monday-Friday from 8 a.m.– 5 p.m.
“Instead of doing this as a team-building activity, we're in fact doing this throughout the neighborhood,” Peiffley said.”It's a method for anybody in the neighborhood who wants to assist during this season who does not understand rather how to do it they can drop off any items they have.”
