Thank You Firefighters

Our Sound community has been busy this week! Our patients drew, colored, and wrote letters this week thanking the firefighters in the North Bay for their tireless work. We were beyond impressed by how much thought and love was conveyed in these messages. Many of the children in our sessions told us of stories of recess being canceled, how much the air hurt to breathe, and how they were scared of the fires but felt safe with the work the firefighters were doing. We even had a few kids give up their reward iPad/game time at the end of the session to make an extra card to thank the firefighters!

As a reminder, Sound is collecting funds all month log for the North Bay Fire Relief Fund. Our team will match up to $2000 in donations. #northbayfires #theloveintheairisthickerthanthesmoke
