Porterfield Family Chiropractic gave more than the gift of health recently. Their first ever Patient Appreciation Day was celebrated and Dr. Ryan Porterfield decided to do something special.
Dr. Porterfield sent all of his patients a letter stating that if they brought in $5 or five canned goods, he would give them an adjustment free of charge.
"I had 63 people come in one day to donate," Dr. Porterfield said. "It was incredible."
Nearly $300 worth of food was collected, coming to weigh in at about 80 pounds. All of the food was donated to a local food pantry in Valparaiso.
"This time of year is hard for some people so this is our way of giving back," Dr. Porterfield said.
