Miami-Dade’s Physical Therapy Now Toy Drive
Physical Therapy Now is proud to announce it’s 8th Annual Toy Drive, being held in December 2019, just in time for the Christmas holiday. The event has been a huge success in the past, and this year, PT Now Executives are looking forward to an even bigger and better event.
Andy Zapata is the CEO of Physical Therapy Now, and he says it’s nothing short of a blessing to give back to the very community where he has built his physical therapy franchise operation.
“It doesn’t get any better than being in Miami, but unfortunately, there are still so many children out there that won’t get to have the Christmas they truly deserve, so that’s where we come in,” Zapata explains.
“We’re expecting this event to bring out more people than any other event we’ve hosted, which is huge. They all bring a gift or a monetary donation, but many of them bring more gifts that what we ask. So just think… we’re making Christmas more special for hundreds and hundreds of kids, and I’m so excited about that.”
Zapata and his Physical Therapy Now employees are teaming up again with The Boys Girls Club of Miami-Dade to benefit the children involved with the organization. It has been in operation since the 1940s and has since grown to serve 8,000+ children in the Miami-Dade community. According to its website:
“We believe every child deserves an opportunity to thrive and succeed. At our clubs, they participate in programs for character and leadership development, academic achievement, career, and vocational preparation and health & life skills. These quality, after-school, and summer activities engage youth ages 5-18 through cultural arts and sports, fitness and recreation. Our programs give our community’s children positive experiences, which help guide them and offer a moral compass on their life’s journey.”
Contributing heavily to the past success of Physical Therapy Now Toy Drive events have been the local sponsorship opportunities participated in by many individuals and businesses in the Miami-Dade area.
Zapata says, “We’ve got an amazing community here in Miami-Dade, and when all the businesses and people who are able to give back come together for this event, it’s a win-win for everyone.” He continues, “It truly is an honor to give back. I truly believe its our job and our duty to give back to our communities – not just through our jobs, but in other ways as well.”
The 2019 Annual Physical Therapy Now Toy Drive is expected to draw more than 1500 people.
The event is scheduled for December 19th, 2019, from 7-11pm at The Biltmore, located at 1200 Anastasia Avenue in Coral Gables. For more information about Physical Therapy Now, go to www.physicaltherapynow.com. For sponsorship opportunities, contact Armando Bugallo at (305) 898-3378.
