At the cornerstone of our plastic surgery practice is a commitment to community involvement, especially in Valparaiso, Schererville, and the surrounding areas our staff and patients call home. This holiday season, we’re excited to give back in a big way: by donating a total of $5,000 to 3 charitable organizations near and dear to our hearts.
How did we choose? We asked members of our staff to nominate different charities as possible recipients of the donation. Together, we narrowed the list down to 10, all of which contribute to the strength of our community:
- Alzheimer’s Association of Greater Indiana
- Campagna Academy
- Fair Haven Center for Women
- Greater Hammond Community Services
- Habitat for Humanity of Northwest Indiana
- Meals on Wheels Northwest Indiana
- The N.I.C.K. Foundation (Northwest Indian Cancer Kids Foundation, Inc.)
- Tradewinds Services Inc.
- Treasured Friends Animal Rescue and Adoption (Highland)
- Veterans of Foreign Wars
How will the donations be awarded? These 10 organizations have impressed us with their passion and commitment to advancing their mission. Now it’s up to you to decide which 3 will receive the donation. Based on your votes, the top 3 will receive:
- First place: $3,500
- Second place: $1,000
- Third place: $500
