IPT Donates To Heather’s Closet

On Friday, January 8, 2016, Indiana Physical Therapy™ presented a check to Heather’s Closet at their Brooklyn Clinic location. This lump sum of $1,600, was raised by both staff and patients over the course of only a few months through individual donations and an in-house fundraiser. (photos attached below)

Heather’s Closet is a non-profit organization whose mission is to educate young people on teen dating violence prevention in addition to relationship awareness by using a customized curriculum and specialty programs. In order to fulfill their mission and provide these services, they rely on the generosity of individuals and businesses for support. After seven years of operation, the organization strives to expand its programs and events.

IPT was first made aware of this amazing organization when dating violence claimed the life of one owner’s family member far too soon. During the fundraiser, IPT personnel were able to wear jeans on Fridays by donating a small amount. Even some patients were moved by the cause and donated in addition to the staff.

If you would like to donate or become involved in any way with this organization, you can contact Executive Director Joni Kuhn, at Heather’s Closet, (260) 615-4831.
