“In a world where you can be anything, be kind.”
ARC Physical Therapy+ has supported Phoenix Family for the last 10+ years, selecting at least one family to shop for each holiday season. This year, we are proud to continue the tradition by adopting a family of five.
We purchased a winter coat, hat, gloves, underwear, socks, shoes and/or boots, and additional clothing items for each family member. We also purchased toys for the children, and food, toiletries and cleaning products.
“We love supporting Phoenix Family,” Tonya Knoettgen, Business Development Liaison, shared. “Our team is so generous, and to match that giving spirit with an organization like Phoenix Family is a win-win.”
“Beyond excellence in healthcare, we are committed to giving back to the community in meaningful ways,” Director of HR, Rachel Chick, said. “Partnering with Phoenix Family is a great way to come together as a team to support a family in our community.”

About Phoenix Family
Phoenix Family provides services to more than 3,000 families every day. With 200 local partnerships, they help families find lasting solutions to complex problems. Their programs combine short-term assistance to meet immediate critical needs with long-term services that address the root causes of poverty.
Phoenix Family’s Adopt-a-Family program provides families and older adults living in low-income housing with a Christmas they cannot afford for themselves. Each sponsor receives information about the family or senior that they are helping along with an individualized wish list. Every gift brought in goes directly to the family or senior that was adopted.
