The Association of NJ Chiropractors (ANJC) is once again launching its statewide community service initiative, “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” to help the less fortunate during the holiday and winter seasons. Participating New Jersey chiropractors have the option of running a food drive in conjunction with collection of donations of unwanted coats, hats, gloves and scarves in good condition for distribution to food pantries, local community groups and charities.
One Freehold chiropractor, Dr. Russell Brokstein, has been participating in this drive for the last 10 years. Dr. Brokstein says, “I grew up in Freehold and I returned to give back to the community. I strive to not only provide the best chiropractic care possible and educate the public about natural health and wellness but to participate in community drives to help make Freehold the amazing town it is.
“The holiday season is meant to be a time of joy and celebration. There are so many people that aren’t as fortunate as the rest of us. If we can donate food and warm clothing during the winter months we can put smiles on the faces of those less fortunate.”
Starting November 27, 2015 until January 4, 2016, you can drop off non-perishable food items, coats, hats, gloves and scarves for those in need at the Hometown Family Wellness Center at 9 Broadway, Freehold, NJ, . These items will be donated to the local food pantry The Open Door and St. Peter’s Thrift Shop in downtown Freehold, NJ.
Everyone who participates in Baby, It’s Cold Outside will be given a “Gift (Of Health) Certificate” for a complimentary consultation with Dr. Brokstein. You can either use it yourself or make a gift of it to help somebody you know be more healthy.
