HealthSouth Vineland Participates in Giving Tuesday for Camp Trek
On Nov. 29, HealthSouth Rehabilitation Hospital of Vineland will participate in Giving Tuesday, a global movement being observed for the fifth year that supports giving and philanthropy, for a cause close to home – the Brain Injury Alliance of New Jersey’s Camp TREK. Camp TREK is a week-long residential camp that allows a valuable experience for adults who are living with brain injury, offering new challenges and opportunities. The camp also provides a break for the caregivers who routinely give round-the-clock care for individuals who have experienced brain injury.
“We frequently treat patients who have experienced brain injury at HealthSouth Vineland, so this cause is very dear to our hearts as we form close relationships with patients and their caregivers during their stay,” said Tammy Feuer, CEO at HealthSouth Vineland. “We hope our efforts on Giving Tuesday will provide much needed funding for this camp that provides a great service for these individuals and their caregivers. We also encourage others in the community to follow suit in making a difference through a charity or organization they believe in.”
To raise money, HealthSouth Vineland employees have the opportunity to purchase chocolate brain-shaped candy grams for $2 each that will be delivered internally. The brain-shaped chocolates were handmade by Allison Frederick, senior speech therapist and brain injury team lead; and Vanessa Johnson, therapy team lead. Employees may also wear jeans to work on Giving Tuesday for a $5 donation. All proceeds will benefit Camp TREK.
