(Richmond, Virginia) July 8, 2013 -- Sheltering Arms will soon celebrate 125 years of delivering compassionate care to generations of families throughout central Virginia, and they are appealing for help from the entire community.
“Tens of thousands of people have been touched by Sheltering Arms over the years,” says Stephanie Sulmer, Director of Marketing & Public Relations. “We’re hoping to hear from everyone who has a past connection with us. We want to be sure that our 125th anniversary celebration includes those who have served or been served by Sheltering Arms.”
From its humble roots as a provider of free healthcare in Richmond, Sheltering Arms has evolved into a nationally recognized physical rehabilitation leader. The anniversary committee is seeking stories and pictures from throughout the organization’s past, both recent and distant.
Specifically, they are looking for patients who have unique stories, people from the community who have volunteered time or resources, staff from years gone by, family members whose loved ones had connections with Sheltering Arms, and other special memories. Sheltering Arms has been woven into the fabric of the community for years and there are countless ways to be connected to this institute of caring.
To respond to this appeal and become a part of this milestone celebration, call (804) 723-ARMS or click here today.
