Dr. Lisa Arndt, of Arndt Chiropractic Center, Bettendorf, recently donated 500 pounds of food to support the River Valley Optimist Club’s Backpack Program.
The program’s mission is to provide Pleasant Valley School District students who receive free meals during the school week with an opportunity to eat healthy meals on the weekends. The program operates solely on donations.
Additionally, Arndt opened her clinic for a full day of free spinal screening examinations. Her patients, in turn, donated to the backpack program.
“We believe in providing support to the community by providing service to others. There is no more deserving group of individuals than the children of our community,” said Arndt, who is a national board-certified chiropractor and registered nurse.
