NUTTER FORT, W.Va.– An office of a local chiropractor is contributing to homeless veterans this year for the vacations in Harrison County.
The Chiropractic Care Center is doing a drive for veterans who are leaving homelessness by providing basics like hygiene and cleansing items, pots, pans, and more.
Chiropractic Assistant Teth Peiffley stated they decided as a team to do this job so they might get the community included.
“We have such a big client base, and there are incredible clients. We always want to do something to assist in the neighborhood, especially during these times,” said Peiffley.
Peiffley explained when a Veteran exits homelessness there only giving the home itself and go into the house with only the clothing on their backs.
“Everybody having a rough time but specifically with people who are homeless,” discussed Peiffley. “Unfortunately, there's not a great deal of federal government help today, particularly with whatever happening with everybody getting into a brand-new home and having what they require to start.”
The Chiropractic Care Center plans to give the products on December 20, 2020, at the VA Hospital to one of their customers that work as a social worker for the homeless.
The Chiropractic Care Center is collecting products from now till December 18, 2020 at their Bridgeport and Nutter Fort areas throughout their organization hours.
The Bridgeport office is open Monday-Friday from 7 a.m.– 6 p.m. and the Nutter Fort workplace is open Monday-Friday from 8 a.m.– 5 p.m.
“Instead of doing this as a team-building activity, we're actually doing this throughout the community,” Peiffley said.”It's a way for anyone in the neighborhood who wants to help during this season who does not know rather how to do it they can drop off any products they have.”
