AT Home Care is gearing up for their 7th annual Limb Drive which will take place on Sunday, May 17th , in Norfolk.  We are collecting prosthetic limbs and rehabilitation equipment to be used by amputees in developing countries. PFP, the international nonprofit, medical-education organization, created the Walking Free program with AT Home Care’s internationally renowned physical therapist, David A. Lawrence, in 2002, to provide the much needed equipment to clinics established in developing countries.  The event takes place from 12:00 to 2:00 pm in the parking lot of the Norfolk Tides Baseball stadium, Harbor Park, off Union Street in Norfolk.  Each person making a donation (limb,  walker, etc., or money) will receive 2 complimentary tickets (while supply lasts) to the baseball game that afternoon.

Prosthetic limbs and orthotic devices will be collected from hospitals, physical therapists and amputees from all over the country.  The prosthetics are then disassembled and sent to the Walking Free clinics in developing countries where PFP volunteers train local therapists and prosthetists in the latest techniques of amputee treatment.
 This collection goes on throughout the year at locations around the country.  For more information on how to donate, call AT Home Care’s main office at 866 497-4110.
