Magee Rehab Hosts Casey Feldman Memorial Foundation’s 4th Annual Day of Service
Date:7/12/2013

Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) July 12, 2013

Magee Rehabilitation Hospital will host the Casey Feldman Memorial Foundation for its fourth annual “Angelversary” Day of Service on July 17, 2013 from 10:00 a.m. to 2 p.m. The Foundation, which helped Magee launch its first ever Facility Dog Program in 2011, will be assisting with beautification projects on the Hospital’s 6th floor.

Her love of animals inspired the Foundation to help Magee launch and maintain Magee’s Facility Dog Program. This year, the Casey Feldman Memorial Foundation and the Anapol Schwartz Foundation gave $10,000 to the program, ensuring Magee’s facility dog Joey will continue to provide patients with improved outcomes.

“Casey loved animals, especially dogs—she even volunteered at a no-kill animal shelter,” said Joel Feldman, Casey’s father, managing partner at Anapol Schwartz and one of the founders of the Casey Feldman Memorial Foundation. “At the Foundation, we have spent so much time focusing on preventing distracted driving, which is important—but I could always hear Casey saying, ‘Dad, what about the animals?’ On the fourth anniversary of her death, it is so fitting that we remember her through this gift to Magee, a gift that will help those facing life-altering changes adapt to t
