ACG Medical Supply Supports Fallen Officers at the Run for the Blue Dallas 15K/5K
Our local community was rocked when twelve police officers were shot and five were killed at a local protest on July 16, 2016. The Blue Guardian Foundation is a wonderful organization that provides financial support for the families of police officers that have been injured or killed in the line of duty. Our hearts went out to those officers and their family and friends. We wanted to do something to help.
On the one year anniversary of the shooting, the Blue Guardian Foundation started up a Run for The Blue Dallas 15K/5K to raise funds for these officers and their families.
Here at ACG Medical Supply, we knew this was our chance to help out, not only these officers' families, but all of those that could benefit from this foundation.
We wanted to give the opportunity to all of our patients to help us to benefit the cause. On July 2, 2018 we gathered up 10% of the sales from both of our stores and our website sales to be donated to the Blue Guardian Foundation. On July 7, 2018 before the Run for the Blue Dallas 5K, Stephanie was able to donate a check for $520.00 on behalf of ACG Medical Supply!
Fall Prevention Awareness Fair at the Hurst Senior Activities Center
On September 11, 2018 ACG Medical Supply participated in the Fall Prevention Awareness Fair at the Hurst Senior Activities Center. Stephanie brought out several items that help prevent falls in and around the house, as well as at the car.
Over one third of all seniors will fall each year. Of those falls, 80% of them occur in the bathroom. ACG Medical Supply carries items such as slip resistant mats, grab bars, shower stools, bath benches, and hand held shower nozzles to help prevent falls in the bathroom.
For other areas, such as getting in and out of the car, off the couch, or off the floor if you have fallen, there are different kinds of gait belts, handy handles and grab bars.
All of the staff members are trained on how to use each of the products and are helpful in product demonstration and education.
