Local orthopedists collecting prosthetic limbs for Haiti

If you have an extra leg or foot in the back of the closet, consider donating it to Hanger Orthopedics’ prosthetic drive for earthquake victims in Haiti.

The Grass Valley office, located at 375 Brunswick, Suite #103, and its parent company are donating money, old prosthetics and orthopedic devices to earthquake victims in Haiti. Local residents can bring in braces, splints and prosthetics in good condition to the office between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Nationwide, Hanger Orthopedic Group, Inc. will donate $225,000 in neck and back braces, wrist splints, fracture boots and limb immobilizers through the Physicians for Peace and Project HOPE charities.

Some of the 1,100 prosthetists and orthotists in the company plan to travel to Haiti to provide care to victims.
