I am a San Diego chiropractor and also run a non-profit in La Jolla, San Diego. It is really important for us to give back to our amazing community. This year is no different. From October 1st to October 25th we are conducting our third annual Costume Drive. We will be collecting gently used and new costumes designed for children kindergarten to 5th grade, which equates to kids size small to adult mediums.
There are two drop off locations. The first drop off location is our chiropractic office in La Jolla, Gonstead Family Chiropractic. We are a centrally located chiropractic office in San Diego right off of the 5 and 52 highways. The second costume drop off location is Avanti Harcourts - The Salas Group located in Solana Beach.
Last year we were able to collect close to 80 costumes, where the children from the Monarch School were then able to pick out their favorite costume to dress up for Halloween.
Our chiropractic office in San Diego is actually going to throw in an added bonus this year. We are going to award anyone who donates a costume a chiropractic examination (neurological, chiropractic, orthopedic), full spine x-ray, spinal scan, and a report of findings normally $150 for the price of $50. It is our way to give back to our community, especially for those willing to give back to it as well. As part of our office policy, we are unable to award this amazing benefit to anyone whom is a personal injury, workers compensation, or medicare patient.
To sweeten this even more, as your chiropractoc in San Diego, I am going to donate a portion of all new examinations and x-rays to Hands For Life UTC, a non-profit that gives back to our community both locally here in San Diego at Father Joes Village Health Center, Tijuana, as well as serving the people far less fortunate in the Dominican Republic.
So I am asking all of you that live in San Diego, Pacific Beach, La Jolla, Clairemont, UTC, Del Mar, and all surrounding communites of San Diego County to please reach out to offer any gently used or new costumes.
