The Move Chiropractic Family is doing a holiday giving tree from November 29th - December 23rd to support a couple of different local causes, which includes Project Ignite, Toothbrush Ministries, as well as local youth in need of winter gear. Drop off with be during business hours through the morning of December 23rd.
We hope you can find time to provide some of the following items for these great organizations:
1 ½ yards of print and/or matching fleece
New youth pajamas
New single count toothbrushes
New travel-sized toothpaste
New or gently used youth-sized snow pants/hats/gloves/jackets/boots
Project Ignite Light
is a local organization that aims to equip children entering a hospital or advocacy center with a ‘Bag of Hope’. Every "Bag of Hope" includes:
Fleece Tie Blanket
Pajamas / Socks / Underwear
2-in-1 Shampoo / Conditioner
Toothbrush / Toothpaste
Fruit Snacks / Water Bottle
Book: "You Are Special" by Max Lucado
Zipper Tote Bag to hold all their new special items
(Teen Girl bags also include deodorant and a personal journal)
Often children in these situations are left feeling insecure and unsure of themselves and the people around them. Through Project Ignite Light we give them a small piece of security.
Because so many of the hurting children feel used only new items are placed in the bags.
Every item that is placed in their personal bag has a special purpose other than the obvious daily uses. This could be allowing their caregiver time to wash their daily outfit to giving the child control over something as simple as a flashlight. We feel every item on this list is a valuable tool for the betterment of a child's life. However, due to the vast number of children in need, we will only succeed if the people around us get behind this worthy cause! Please partner with us to share Light in a dark place.
has the Mission to collaborate within communities, to encourage people to donate to others in need, by pooling resources to make a large impact in our community and around the world. They want to encourage those who don't need the complimentary toothbrushes they receive from their routine visits and to donate to someone in need.
They have also started a Brushing Basics Program to encourage dental hygiene education and awareness to support healthy living long term.
Lastly - we are collecting cold-weather items for youth in the Fargo-Moorhead. Many patients from the Move family are teachers and have made us aware of how many kids are going to school without the necessary items to be able to play outside. With how frigid our winters get, we want to provide these teachers with some extras to give to their kids as needed.
