This holiday season, American Mechanical, Inc. is sponsoring a gift drive for the deserving children and young adults at St. Mary’s Home in Norfolk!
St. Mary’s Home provides children from across Virginia with long and short term care for severe physical and intellectual disabilities. From the St. Mary’s Home website: â€œNursing staff provide professional, 24-hour clinical care, and nearly 20 specialists from Children’s Hospital of the King’s Daughters and Eastern Virginia Medical School routinely come to the Home to see the children. The children have regular physical therapy, and occupational therapy staff fit the children for splints to keep their limbs in alignment and customize and maintain their wheelchairs and other equipment. The dietary service department prepares and delivers all meals based on physician-approved diets overseen by a registered dietitian. Support coordinators meet with the children, parents or guardians and staff to make sure the children receive appropriate services based on their individual needs.
The children also enjoy many activities both at the Home and in the community, from swimming in the Home’s therapy pool to taking field trips to the beach, the library or a museum, supervised by the recreational therapy and activities staffs.
Here at American Mechanical, we believe that these children deserve to have the best holiday season; we ask that the local community join us in helping provide it.
If you are interested in participating in this wonderful event, St. Mary’s Home has created a Wish List, which can be found here. St. Mary’s does a wonderful job of providing care to those with physical and intellectual disabilities, and we are thrilled to be able to participate in giving the very worthy individuals who are in their care a great holiday season!
From now until December 13th, 2013, anyone interested in participating can give any of our technicians anything they wish to contribute (unwrapped, per St. Mary’s Home’s request) during a service call, you can call us and we will pick them up, and you are also welcome to visit our office at 633 10th St, Virginia Beach, VA 23451 to drop off your gifts. We wish you a holiday season filled with happiness and joy!
