Keeping It Local – We Can Make A Difference

How important is it for us to support our local community?

At Sarasota Orthopedic Associates we are so much more than physicians and medical support staff. We believe supporting our local community through non-profit organizations is an essential component of what we represent. Our professional mission is to get our patients back to their lives, however, that mission extends to our responsibility to the local community as well. We believe physical and financial support to local non-profit groups helps our community flourish by providing educational opportunities for our youth, keeping our arts and cultural groups thriving, supporting sports events to mature, and enabling the well-being of those we touch throughout the year. Most of all, the sustenance we provide to these organizations simply makes us proud knowing we are able to help others.

There is not a day ending here at Sarasota Orthopedic Associates without an organization asking for our help. We wish we could answer all those appeals particularly when the need is so great. We endeavor to allocate our support not only to charitable organizations, but more so to those where SOA is able to actively participate as a dynamic partner in serving a cause.

Here are just a few organizations we’ve supported over the past year:

Last year was our first Holiday Giving Tree mission and it profoundly touched the hearts of every staff member here at #TeamSOA. This year we hope to begin earlier and reach out to even more families in anticipation of lifting their spirits during the holiday season. We invite you to join us in early November, when we begin fulfilling the wishes of local families in need. Watch our blog for details, send us your comments here, or email Swall@SOA.md to learn how you might partner with us.

“For it is in giving that we receive” (Francis of Assisi). Well said.
