We were honored to work again with Kipnis Physical Therapy and Sports Medicine during their recent Crutches 4 Kids crutch drive which took place from April-June. This is the second year in which Kipnis Physical Therapy has been a significant source for the collection of hundreds of crutches, canes and wheelchairs for the charity. The three locations in New Jersey were convenient gathering places for the collection, along with staff members who volunteered to retrieve crutches from offices who had posted flyers provided by Kipnis PT. Overall, Kipnis collected 62+ pairs of crutches, 34 walkers, and ten canes (with donations continuing to flow in after the drive). These mobility devices will enable children to attend school, play, and create a bright future that they may not have had otherwise.
We would like to thank the patients, staff, surrounding doctor’s offices, and businesses who participated in the crutch drive! Kipnis PT will continue to accept gently used mobility aids at all three of its locations moving forward (Secaucus, Cliffside Heights and Hackensack). We look forward to continuing to build our partnership in helping mobilize children around the world!
