  • APTA to Match Donations for NY and NJ Relief Efforts

    Following the devastation of Hurricane Sandy, the New York and New Jersey chapters have established relief funds to help the physical therapy community affected by the storm. APTA will match contributions to both of the funds 1:1 up to $5,000. Click here to donate to the New Jersey Chapter's Hurricane Sandy Disaster Relief Fund. At this time, the New York Chapter has not posted a donation link on its website. APTA will provide a link to the fund when it becomes available.

    In addition to the chapter-specific relief efforts, the association will donate $1,000 to the American Red Cross.

    [November 6 Editor’s Note: Information about the New York Chapter's relief fund, and an online donation form, now is available on the chapter's website.] 


    • I loudly applaud APTA. This is a great start from a great organization! Considering the penetration and span of devastation across practice types, varieties of construction and geographic locations, I hope more chapters will be considered. I also hope the APTA Board will consider higher financial matches per chapter with user friendly and expedient assistance criteria that meet the various needs for practices to quickly get back to serving their patients/clients.
