September is already here, and that means all the kids (much to most parents’ delight) are heading back to school!
We know what happens next: that scramble to do the last minute school shopping for new clothes, new shoes, and a backpack full of supplies to ensure that the kids have what they need to succeed this year.
But there’s a flip side to the story. Imagine a child who was pulled from home and placed into foster care just before the summer ended. This child isn’t able to take any of their belongings with them, and now find themselves not only adjusting to a new, and quite possibly temporary home, but also they have the added stresses of potentially being “the new kid,” and not being afforded the luxury of going back to school with all of these nice things.
Dr. Kris and the Vitality Chiropractic team are passionate about helping make sure that as many San Diego displaced foster children go back to school with that new backpack.
It seems like an insignificant item, but a new backpack can not only increase confidence and self-esteem for school-age children….it can simply show them that people care about them, despite what they may think and feel after all they’ve been through.
And so, this is our challenge to you: From now until September 30, 2014 bring in a new backpack, donate money towards a new backpack, or purchase a backpack from our Amazon Wish List and have it sent to our office!
New Patients will receive 50% off their initial exam, and existing patients will be entered into a drawing to win one of two gift cards to Snooze Eatery or Chocolat!
It’s a small gesture, and yet it’s one that makes a huge impact. Help us help South Bay Community Services send these kids back to school with the essentials for success!
Have any questions? Give us a call at (619) 299-9722. Mention the backpack drive when you call to schedule your New Patient Exam, so we can assure you get the discounted rate of $49!
