By: Melissa Coon ARC Physical Therapy+ is temporarily closing its clinic doors again to give back to the community on July 10. As part of its company-wide “Give Back Day,” ARC Physical Therapy+ will volunteer at Harvesters, a regional food bank that provides food and related household products to 26-county areas in northwestern Missouri and northeastern Kansas. Throughout the year, ARC Physical Therapy+ participates in a variety of philanthropic opportunities and events. On Fridays, the staff are allowed to “dress down” and wear jeans if they donate to a preselected nonprofit organization or cause. The staff also participates in various races and community events throughout the year to help raise awareness and funding for certain initiatives. Additionally, the company provides its staff and referral sources with Charity Gift Cards throughout the year that can be donated to various causes. The company-wide “Give Back Day” is by far their biggest philanthropic event of the year. “Our Give Back Day is an opportunity for us to fulfill our mission to be a catalyst of change in our region,” said Matt Condon, ARC Physical Therapy+ Founder and CEO. “By shutting down our clinics and transporting our staff to Kansas City to spend the day serving our community we are showing our true commitment to our mission.” Last year, ARC Physical Therapy+ volunteered its time with Phoenix Family, a local nonprofit organization in Kansas City that provides people living in low-income housing communities with the onsite support they need to gain stability and achieve self-sufficiency. The company plans to continue this tradition for years to come.
