GRACE is teaming up with Baylor Institute of Rehabilitation’s Day Neuro program to integrate patients with traumatic brain injuries, strokes, and spinal cord injuries into the community and offer the opportunity to serve.
For patients who opt in the service project, the group plans to come on a regular basis, where the team will sort goods and clothing and perform any special projects as needed. It was important that the service time was voluntary to lend a sense of achievement and altruism with each patient.
The additional benefits of a project at Donation Station are the repetitive movements that are fluid but not cumbersome. Assigning tasks also allows for critical thinking skills and decision making to improve mental and physical health. A special thanks to Baylor Rehab and the neuro patients who give their time and resources to help families in need!
If your group is looking for a project or service day, we are eager to collaborate with you. Contact Volunteer Manager Lara Hohweiler to discuss options based on availability, and group size.
If your group is interested in hosting a third-party collection drive for our Clinic, Food Pantry or Clothing Room, Special Events Manager Chelsea Rose has many resources available to you.
