For the past five years, Huffman Family Chiropractic has been reaching into the Henry County community to assist those who need a helping hand. The tradition continues this Christmas season.
The office partners with the Christian Love Center in receiving names. These are families that will not receive help from any other source this season. Dr. Joe Huffman and his staff have a tree in the office decorated with the names of local children showing their Christmas wishes.
Anyone wishing to help make Christmas special for these children may come and pick up the details at the office from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays and 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays. Huffman Family Chiropractic is located at 2021 S. Memorial Drive, New Castle, between Myer's Furniture and Webb's.
All gifts need to be returned to Huffman's by 5 p.m. Monday, Dec. 16. The staff members say they can be flexible too, if someone is willing to help. Anyone not wishing to do the wrapping is encouraged to participate anyway and the staff members will do the wrapping. Monetary donations are welcome and the staff members will do the shopping.
