Beginning November 15, Orthopedic Institute of Pennsylvania will launch its annual Reindeer Games, an effort to both celebrate its associates AND give back to the central PA community.
This year, the group will partner with CocoaPacks Toy Drive and the United Methodist Home for Children. OIP associates will participate in several challenges to raise important donations for these organizations, BUT patients and community members are invited to drop off donations, too! Learn more about how you can help us impact the lives of local children in need.
CocoaPacks Toy Drive, November 15 – December 3
CocoaPacks provides supplemental food and other support to local children in need to enhance overall wellness. The group’s vision is a world where all children have what they need to succeed.
