USAP clinicians across the country take an active role in their communities to support health and welfare, education and civic enrichment. We take extra steps to recognize and coordinate these efforts every October, but teams across the country support their communities year-round. Read about some of their recent efforts below.
Our Texas-Gulf Coast team recently raised nearly $13,000 for March for Babies, which supports research, programs and advocacy to address the maternal and infant health crisis. The clinicians and office staff divided into teams for a friendly fundraising competition leading up to the event. Both teams not only reached but exceeded their fundraising goals.
In Florida, the Fort Myers team participated in the largest cleanup event along the Sanibel Island Causeway with the Great American Cleanup Project, removing approximately 500 pounds of trash from the coastline. They were joined by family members and friends, along with the other local groups, and spent a total of three hours restoring the environment.
In Washington state, our Seattle team joined an environmental preservation project as part of the City of Seattle Day of Service, helping to keep the community’s parks free of invasive weeds and trash. USAP team members selected a project at Kerry Park in Queen Anne Hill, which overlooks scenic downtown Seattle.
