Leading up to the holiday season, we worked with some fantastic organizations to help bring some extra holiday cheer to a handful of deserving families affected by brain injury.
We worked with the Prince George Brain Injured Group Society to “adopt” two families. Both were single parent families where the parent had suffered a brain injury. We also worked with B.R.A.I.N (Brain Resource Advocacy & Information Network) to identify some of the organization’s members who could use some extra support during the holiday. These families were unable to obtain any financial assistance through the legal process (and therefore not families we could help in any other way).
With the help of JR Rehab Services Inc and social workers on the neurological ward at Vancouver General Hospital we raised money to purchase new toys, books, and even a bassinet for one couple expecting their first child. We also gathered some of our own items to donate. All in all, we put together five boxes of wrapped presents. The presents arrived on the doorsteps of five very surprised and delighted families. We were thrilled to be able to play a small part in helping make their Christmas a happy and memorable one.
The whole team at Webster & Associates enjoyed the chance to support the brain injury community and we look forward to doing it again next year!
