Accelacare food drive underway now

Danielle Stubblefield, Garden City native and office manager at Accelacare Physical Therapy, 1800 Palace Dr. Ste. C, makes a donation to the clinic’s food drive. Donations are being accepted until Dec. 20.

Accelacare Physical Therapy’s second annual food drive is currently underway. The clinic began collecting nonperishable food on Nov. 20 to donate to families of young children who receive services from Russell Child Development Center in Garden City.

“We are humbled by Accelacare’s recognition of our community’s needs and their generous partnership with RCDC to make sure young children’s basic needs are met this time of year,” said Deanna Berry, executive director of RCDC.

RCDC serves a vital role in Garden City — helping local children with developmental disabilities and offering many important services to families and caregivers.

“We are excited to begin this year’s food drive and partner with RCDC and the community to help support those in need. So many donated food items last year and we look forward to seeing all of you again,” said Dr. Wes Wickwar PT, founder and owner of Accelacare Physical Therapy and Occupational Services.

Food items may be brought to the physical therapy clinic at 1800 Palace Drive, Suite C, located behind Golden Corral. Accelacare is open 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Fridays.

On Dec. 19, the items collected will be transported to RCDC and the organization will distribute the food to families. Donations will continue to be accepted until January.
