Winter Fundraiser Dates: February 1st - February 26th, 2021

  

We are supporting our local furry friends again this year.  This fundraiser is in remembrance of our first "Therapy Dog, Thea." Beacom Family Chiropractic is offering new patients a $50 first visit which includes the consultation, spinal examination and full spine x-rays, if necessary. (This offer does not apply to Medicare or Medicaid.)

In Thea's name, all proceeds will support Pound Buddies of Muskegon and Oceana County Animal Shelter. Thea brought peace to many here at Beacom Family Chiropractic. Thank you for helping us pay it forward to other furry friends in need.

Food Supply Drive Dates: May 3rd - May 28th, 2021

   The second fundraiser of the year is held to support our White Lake Area Food Pantry. Each year BFC collects non-perishable food items as well as hygiene products during a time of the year when the food pantry does not get as many donations. With the help from practice members, the past two years BFC has donated over 2000 pounds of food. "It is a wonderful thing to watch people in our community come together to help others. It is heart warming to see two pickup trucks filled to the brim with donations for the food pantry," says Dr. Helena. Everyone at BFC loves providing much needed supplies to the White Lake Area Food Pantry. "We appreciate the work you do to help people in our community & your concern about hunger. Thank you once again for your work to help alleviate hunger in Whitehall & Montague." Revs. Pam & Keith Koebel, Co-pastors of White Lake Congregational U.C.C. and Karen Bonczyk, coordinator of Share the Blessing Food Pantry.

 

White Lake Area 4th of July Parade: ODD YEARS ONLY

Beginning at 10am, the White Lake Area 4th of July parade will travel from Whitehall City Hall to Downtown Montague. Over 100 entries are involved in this family-fun annual parade. Beacom Family Chiropractic is a part of this fabulous event every other year. Look for our BFC Spine T-Shirts walking the parade on odd years or on the sidelines during even years.  Either way, you will see members of BFC supporting our lovely community. Come on down and cheer for your favorite Chiropractic office!

 

School Supply Drive Dates: August 2nd - September 3rd, 2021

The third fundraiser is a backpack and school supply drive for the Whitehall and Montague elementary schools. With help from our practice members and community, BFC raised over 8,000 items to aid with the budget cuts that are hurting our schools. Teachers get the chance to supply their classrooms with much needed items while children get to privately pick out the items that their parents cannot afford. "Having our children as well as our Chiropractic families in the White Lake area schools, it makes us happy to support the teachers each year," says Dr. Brent. "Oehrli Elementary and the Montague Area Childhood Center are blessed to be part of such a caring and giving community . For the past several years, staff and students at Montague have benefited from the generosity of the Beacom Family Chiropractic School Supply Drive. Due to this generous gift, we have been able to provide students with backpacks and other school supplies that they otherwise would not have had. Our teachers have received supplies that are needed in the classroom as well. The staff and students are very appreciative." Jeff Henderson, MACC and Oehrli Principal

 

Christmas on the Reservation Dates: October 4th - November 19th, 2021

The fourth fundraiser is called Christmas on the Reservation. BFC decorates their office for Christmas and collects gifts for the Native American children in Montana. A group of Chiropractors called The New Renaissance started a non-profit organization in 2005 called Love Has No Color. Sadly, the Native American children live in Third World conditions and often do not have enough food or clothing. Deb Fick, a BFC's former CA, said, "Seeing the kids run for free shoes was eye-opening when we visited Fort Peck in 2012. Seeing first hand all of these children in need just made me want to do more. Going to Fort Peck to give out the gifts in December 2013 and 2015 was gratifying to see how much the kids appreciate our efforts. We made their Christmas!"

When LHNC began 13 years ago, donations went towards building out a movie theater and the Chiropractic Clinic.  The entire building was condemned at that time.  Seven years of work and hundreds of volunteers later, both were completed. Since then, the kids have a social meeting pace that provides protection from dangerous influences like gangs, drugs and crime.  Food is often provided for the children at the movie theater.  Last year, in 2019, a 100% of donations to LHNC went towards the preservation and maintenance of the theater. Those donations provided a safe haven for the kids on the reservation.  Thank you to everyone who has participated since LHNC began!

Chiropractors and their practice members from all over the country have the opportunity to visit the Fort Peck Reservation and hand out the presents that were collected through the months of October and November.

10th Holiday Open House with Santa: December, 2021 TBA

The last event of the year is our beloved Santa Event. 2020 would have been our 10th anniversary of hosting this event.  We pray this year Santa will return to BFC.  Each year, Santa comes to BFC to take pictures with the children.  During Santa's Open House you will have a guide take you on the tour of the office, making sure you meet and greet the doctors, get a chair massage, eat Christmas cookies and of course, take pictures with Santa.  Our massage therapist, Heather Schiller, is always available to talk to parents about the benefits of massage for children while the doctors will discuss the benefits of Chiropractic for children. We have three doctors at BFC; Dr. Brent and Dr. Helena and Dr. Nate.  Together they have a combined 30+ years of practice experience to share with the White Lake community.  In 2018 and 2019 we had a visiting ambulance and fire truck for the kids to explore.  We love to share our office and what we do with our community.  We have a family tree dedicated to our "chiro-kids" and an adjusting room dedicated to our kid patients.  Our chiro-kids love seeing their hand print on the hand print wall in the kids' room and their pictures on the family tree.  You will notice quickly that our office isn't an ordinary doctors office.  This is a fabulous and fun way to end the year at Beacom Family Chiropractic.  Please come share in the fun this year and see what we are truly about!
