WebPT would like to take this time to express our deepest sympathies to those affected by the recent destructive weather in the Southeast portion of the U.S. Below is a map of the areas hardest hit by the Spring 2011 Tornadoes.
One of our very own WebPT team members commented on the destruction:
“I was deeply impacted by the recent destruction and loss of lives in the Southeast. I grew up in Eastern TN. My entire family is still there and I have several friends scattered throughout the Southeast region directly in the path of this horrific storm. I mourn the loss as if it was my family, because ultimately, it was my family.” – Mike Clevenger, WebPT Member Support Rep
As we share in Mike’s empathy for the devastation sustained by friends and family, the WebPT team has also turned our efforts toward the WebPT community of rehab clinics in the Southeast. We have spoken with many of the PT clinics in the region to discover that most were fortunate enough to avoid major damage, only experiencing some power loss and minor issues. However, others were not so lucky. Our thoughts go out to those affected and wish you a speedy return to business and quality of life.
To assist in relief efforts, WebPT is reaching out to provide financial assistance to some of our members and their families in the SouthEastern United States. A portion of our proceeds for the month of May will be donated to local charities, who are able to distribute funds, clothing and food to those who were impacted the most.
Please join WebPT in providing assistance to your fellow therapists, WebPT members and their families; our members have indicated that the following organizations are providing the most immediate and effective assistance:
