Winter Reservation fundraiser Dates: January 30-March 2, 2018

This year we will be doing a quilt raffle for our first fundraiser of the year.  The thread on the quilt makes a pattern of flowers, and the back of the quilt is a gorgeous purple. This homemade quilt is absolutely beautiful!  It will fit a full sized bed. 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

   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

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.

Children Appreciation Day Date: November 29, 2018

The last event of the year is BFCs Chiropractic Family Appreciation Day. Each year, Santa comes to BFC to take pictures with the children. BFC brings in a professional photographer, and BFC pays for the kids pictures with Santa. There is a growing hand print wall in BFCs kids room that the kids get to paint each year. "I love helping the kids put their hand prints on the wall and have them come back each year to see how much they've grown!" says BFCs X-Ray Tech Danielle Rademaker. "This event is so much fun for us and the children. I look forward to it every year!" Also at this event are chair massages done by BFCs licensed massage therapists, free Chiropractic adjustments for their established kid patients, and free exams for families wanting to learn more about Chiropractic care for their children. This is a fabulous and fun way to end the year at Beacom Family Chiropractic.
