LETTER: Chiropractor supports food bank

The other morning my daughter tweaked her neck and couldn’t move her head or shoulders.

The other morning my daughter tweaked her neck and couldn’t move her head or shoulders. My regular chiropractor (who is excellent) was closed that day and I called around and happened to get lucky and get her into another clinic later that morning.

They gave her excellent treatment and I am happy to say that she is up to her regular active self. What I feel compelled to write about is the fact that after our appointment, the chiropractor told us that his clinic offers Chiropractic Kids Day, every second Monday of the month.

On this day, his clinic offers free chiropractic care to children in return for a food donation for the local food bank. Dr. Shane Taylor and his clinic have found this creative way to give a double whammy of generosity back to our community. Not only are they supporting those families that cannot afford chiropractic care, but they are also giving bags of food to the local food bank every month, assisting even more families that deserve our support.

We can all do the math and figure out the amount of money they are giving up every month in order to give back to the families in Nelson, and we all know how much the food bank needs our support. I was inspired and decided I too need to do more for my neighbours. I write this in hopes that Shane Taylor’s clinic will inspire all of us to give back, give generously, give of our time, our money if we can, but most of all, just give. Thanks for the reminder, Shane.
