Time, Talent, & Treasure

posted in: Activities | 0

It’s true what they say, it takes a village to raise a child… and it takes the heart of our patients volunteering to make the Annual Family Drive at Christmas a success. Without the help of our patients sharing love and joy to our chosen families, we would not be able to help 40+ families & 50 Miracle League of Orange County children in our community every year.

If you would like to help, here are various opportunities available, we would love for you to join us this year!  We couldn’t do what we do without all of you! If you are interested in helping, please sign up at the front desk of Cooperstown Chiropractic. If you would like more information or have questions about any of the different volunteer opportunities, please do not hesitate to ask. You are always welcome to call us at 714-525-8700.
