THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR HELPING US HELP the HOUSTON FLOOD VICTIMS!!
Many of you know that our receptionist Rosie is from the Houston area and she continues to have many family members and friends still living in Houston who were greatly affected by the flood. When we learned that Rosie and her husband, Norbert were going to be heading down to Houston to help out we immediately organized a supply drive at Legacy Physical Therapy. We were overwhelmed by the generosity of our patients, friends, and family.
Rosie and Norbert rented a minivan and filled it with all of the donated supplies to drive down to Houston. We were very impressed with the packing ability! Tetris has nothing on Norbert!
Besides all the supply donations, Rosie and Norbert also received $1600 in cash donations. They used this money to buy Home Depot gift cards to help people start to rebuild.
Once down in Houston they partnered with a church local to Rosie’s family’s neighborhood to help distribute items. According to Rosie the church workers did an amazing job and went above and beyond to get items to needy families. Many families lost their cars in the flooding so church volunteers took it upon themselves to drive supplies to those in need.
Rosie said she was glad that she was able to go down and help out. She wishes she could have done more because she knows that there is still so much to be done for these families to get back to their normal daily lives.
From all of us at Legacy Physical Therapy, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all of your generosity. It is awesome to see our community come together like this.
Most of us probably know someone affected by the flooding in Houston. This natural disaster has hit particularly close to home here at Legacy Physical Therapy.

She continues to have several friends and family members that live in the Houston area and have lost their homes and possessions to the flooding. We want to do something to help.
