Thanks to the generous support of community members, Summit Rehabilitation in Marysville collected 319 pounds of food and Cascade Rehabilitation in Smokey Point collected 389 pounds of food.
In celebration of National Physical Therapy Month, Cascade and Summit not only raised awareness of physical therapy, but they also made a difference in their communities.
