Partnerships with local community groups are being established to deliver donations to the Bahamas
Today CORA Health Services, Inc., known as CORA Physical Therapy (“CORA”), a top-10 national operator of outpatient physical therapy services, announced nationwide relief efforts to assist in the aid of those impacted by Hurricane Dorian. CORA will be accepting donations at more than 200 clinic locations in nine states effective immediately. Each clinic will serve as a distribution for basic supplies to send to residents of the Bahamas who have suffered direct and historic impacts from the storm.
“We are witnessing a humanitarian crisis for the people of Grand Bahama and the Abaco Islands,” said Javier Othon, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer at CORA Physical Therapy. “Bahamians are suffering and they need our help during the darkest days; it’s critically important that we use our platform and resources to do our part in providing these communities with basic necessities such as food, medical, and hygiene supplies and other non-perishable items that quite simply are non-existent there today.”
Donations will be accepted at every CORA clinic through September 20. At that time, efforts to pick up donated goods will be coordinated with local churches, civic organizations, and community groups with credible ties in the Bahamas. These partnerships will ensure the frequent delivery of much-needed supplies to residents, while also broadening CORA’s expansive network in hopes of reaching a larger population and making a greater impact. Each collection site is accepting the following items:
Feminine Hygiene Products
Razors & Shaving Cream
Shampoo & Conditioner
Soaps (Bars or Liquids)
Toothpaste & Toothbrushes
Brushes & Combs
Adhesive & Non-Adhesive Bandages
Gauze & Tape

Othon continued, “Our communities are mobilizing, our folks are feeling empowered to take action, our teams are rallying around an incredible outpouring of compassion that epitomizes strength in numbers. There is no doubt in our minds that we can make a heartfelt impact, together. On behalf of the entire CORA Team, we thank you for your support.”
