The foundation relief group is seeking equipment donations and volunteer services for physical therapy clinics devastated by Hurricane Sandy.
HelpingPTs.org, a grass roots effort to help collect funds, equipment, and supplies for physical therapy clinics devastated by Hurricane Sandy, has launched a virtual PT equipment warehouse. The online warehouse located at http://helpingpts.gnrcatalog.com/, will serve as home base for physical therapists wanting to volunteer services and donate fitness products, tables, electrotherapy machines, soft goods, and other supplies to fellow colleagues who lost thousands of dollars’ worth of equipment due to the storm.
The online warehouse was created and is sponsored by GNRcatalog.com (GNR). For more than 26 years, GNRcatalog.com has been a leading supplier of quality rehabilitation, fitness, and physical therapy products for the industry.
“We have had a tremendous response from physical therapists and physical therapy businesses from across the country who want to help by donating funds and supplies,” says PT Development CEO Larry Benz. “The virtual warehouse will help connect donors to our friends that need to replace equipment that was ruined or literally washed away by the storm.” Benz went on to say, “We can’t thank our friends at GNR enough for their contribution to our continued relief efforts.”
