A donation of $50 will cover the fee of a New Patient's first visit; which is normally a $230 value.  Each raffle ticket is $10. Second and third place winners will also receive s prize.  All proceeds will support the children of the Fort Peck Indian Reservation.  This first visit donation does NOT apply to Medicare and Medicaid.

Food Supply Drive Dates: April 24-June 1, 2018 (Completed!)

   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. "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 will again be a part of this fabulous event. We will be wearing our BFC Spine T-Shirts and handing out "Adjust-Mints" for all to enjoy.

 

School Supply Drive Dates: July 31-August 31, 2018 (Completed!)

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 9-November 21, 2018

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. The desire is to expand Love Has No Color to other reservations as well. 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!" 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.

Holiday Open House with Santa, December 6, 2018

The last event of the year is our beloved Santa Event. Each year, Santa comes to BFC to take pictures with the children.  This year we are changing things up.  BFC has a lot ot celebrate!  We added a third doctor, Nathan Elliott, DC as well as a new Chiropractic Assistant, Shannon Houts.  Dr. Brent and Dr. Helena have a combined 30+ years of practice experience to share with the White Lake community and yet there are still members of our community that haven't visited BFC yet!  We decided to have an open house and do office tours, meet and greet with the doctors, pictures with Santa, kid chair massages with our massage therapist, Heather Schiller, samples from the Healthy Pantry health food store as well as a few other surprises.  We have a family tree 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.  We have so much to share with our community. Our office isn't an ordinary doctors office.  We are a family here at BFC.  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!
