The blazing sun, humid air, and corn rising well past knee-high already, are all evidence that summer is definitely here. It’s an exciting time of year! Many people set out on summer vacations, share in family reunions, and celebrate the season with cookouts and fireworks. But not all people. Sadly, hunger doesn’t holiday. A number of our county’s residents may go hungry this summer; yes, in Darke County.
Johnston Chiropractic Clinic is unwilling to overlook this very real issue. Dr. Kristene Clark and her staff are determined to make a difference. Clark has successfully organized an annual food drive for the last 8 years during the Christmas holiday season. This food drive has assisted, alongside other county churches and organizations, in supporting the Grace Resurrection Community Center of Darke County (food pantry, soup kitchen, clothing bank & homeless shelter). Rather than waiting for the traditional season of giving, Johnston Chiropractic is heralding a “Christmas in July”!
In hopes of inspiring the spirit of giving, Dr. Clark’s office will be holding a food drive the week of July 9th, peaking on Saturday, July 14th, with an exciting day of festivities. Bring the whole family for a day of fun and giving! “Christmas in July” is being held at Johnston Chiropractic clinic, 109 Rhoades Avenue (across from Edison Community College), Greenville, from 11am-3pm. WJYW, 88.9 Joy-FM will be on location doing a live broadcast from 1-3.
Bring your food/monetary donation and pamper yourself with a chair massage, treat your car to a hand washing, and receive your free spinal screening, all while your children (or grandchildren) play in the supervised “Bouncy House”! Then grab hotdogs/hamburgers for the family and check out the various vendors. ALL proceeds/donations will benefit the GRCC. In addition, any NEW patient who schedules an appointment with Dr. Clark and contributes a food/monetary donation of $35 or more, will receive their first day services (consultation, examination, x-rays) FREE!
For more information on this “Christmas in July” or how YOU, or your business, may get involved, please contact Steffanie Marion, Practice Representative, at Johnston Chiropractic (937) 548-3610.
