Resurgens Orthopaedics usher in the holidays by giving back to community
Marietta Daily Journal Online, Nov 29, 2016
Resurgens Orthopaedics, which has several Cobb County locations, announced it will usher in the holidays by giving back to the local communities in which it has offices in a variety of unique and personalized ways. Resurgens has empowered its about 1,000 employees to support local charities or projects in each of its 21 locations in metro Atlanta.
“We have some very public-minded physicians, nurses and staff who perform wonderful work in the community at this time of year,” said Dr. Douglas W. Lundy, Resurgens co-president. “They make us very proud. Our job is to support them as best as we can and to try to shine a light on the great work that they do.”
One initiative in which the public can participate at any of Resurgens’ 21 offices is Dr. Gary W. Stewart’s coat and blanket drive benefitting The Haven House of Henry County, a battered women’s shelter. The eighth annual coat and blanket drive is running now through Dec. 15.
It will benefit neglected and abused women and children in need this holiday season. The overflow of extra items will be donated to nearby homeless shelters that partner with The Haven House. More than 1,000 coats and blankets have been distributed through the drive during its history.
Other Resurgens’ efforts include:
The South Region offices will support Kinship Care, a division of the Clayton County Senior Services Department that aids grandparents who are raising grandchildren in the absence of parents.
The Central Region offices will support Operation Christmas Cards, in which participants fill out or hand-make holiday cards to thank U.S. armed service members who are deployed over seasons and remind them that “they are not forgotten.”
The Douglasville and Austell offices will support the West Georgia Elves and the Giving Tree. West Georgia Elves supports families of children with serious illnesses to make sure that the children and their families have a wonderful holiday season. The Giving Tree is a nonprofit that is dedicated to teaching children the merits of helping worthwhile causes and the positive results of their hard work.
Drs. Stewart, Sourendra Raut, Phillip Walton and Deborah Kowalchuk volunteered on Nov. 21 at the Atlanta Union Mission with Our Hearts to Your Soles, a nonprofit that provides free medical foot screening to the less fortunate, including the homeless population. The Atlanta Union Mission was established in 1938. It serves more than 1,000 homeless men, women and children every day.
