Local Chiropractor Donates Services to Habitat for Humanity
Some are born to work with their hands and building materials. Many are competent plumbers, carpenters and construction folk who donate their time and energy to Habitat for Humanity to build homes for low income people.
Habitat for Humanity uses volunteer labor and donations to partner with families who meet the criteria to build homes.
However, being handy isn’t limited to construction projects, something evident through Dr. Anderson’s participation in Doctor’s with a Heart. The chiropractor works at Angelo Back and Rehab, located on Sunset Drive across from Sunset Mall and whole-heartedly supports Habitat for Humanity and their mission.
“He doesn’t consider himself a good plumber or construction worker, but he’s a good chiropractor,” said Patsy Kneller, Executive Director of Habitat Humanity in San Angelo.
For 16 years during the week of Valentine’s Day, Dr. Anderson spends five days donating his time to Habitat for Humanity by offering new patient deals including X-rays, case history and exams for $20, normally a $40 to $100 value.
“On the 12th he always has his regular clients come in for regular adjustments,” explained Kneller. “He reduces the $40 price to $20.”
According to Kneller, Anderson tries to fit in at least 100 patients during the five-day period, and raises anywhere from $1,100 to $2,000 for Habitat. She mentions that he’s been responsible for sponsoring numerous projects and expenses.
“He’s helped us in either sponsoring the windows in the house or setting up the ReStore, and he did buy our tool trailer,” Kneller listed.
This year Dr. Anderson will be taking the donations from Monday, Feb.10 through Valentine’s Day. Additionally, there will be a little bit extra sprinkled in, with $5 raffle tickets for a pair of good seats at the San Angelo Rodeo, courtesy of the San Angelo Stock Show and Rodeo Association. The seats are for Feb. 26 and 27, the drawing for which will be Valentine’s Day.
Kneller encourages everyone to go out and see Dr. Anderson at Angelo Back and Rehab and donate to Habitat for Humanity, while getting a good service from the Doctor with a Heart.
