Jackie Lee's Thrift Shop is a great place to find treasures and useful items any time of year, and we’re always happy to accept your gently loved items as donations. Thrift Shop sales go directly to the Stroke Recovery Center to help support stroke and TBI survivors and their families. Donations of clean, serviceable and complete items are gladly accepted. Your resalable donations may be tax-deductable.
For larger quantities and items, pick-up service is available in the greater Coachella Valley. Please call Al Brummett at 760-323-7676 ext. 122 for scheduling.
From all of us here at Stroke Recovery Center, we’d like to thank our wonderful honorees, generous sponsors, and everyone who attended this year’s Winter Wonderland Ball.
Pictures from the evening are posted on our facebook page: If you don’t have a facebook account, just go online (www.facebook.com) and register – you don’t have to post pictures or tell people your every move but it allows you to visit other folks and see what they are up to. Once you have that done, go to our page: www.facebook.com/TheStrokeRecoveryCenter and “like” us. Then have fun searching the photos for friends and family all of whom were having a great time.
Don’t forget to mark your calendar for next year’s Ball. It will be November 22nd. We look forward to seeing you all there.
World Stroke Day Reminds Us That Any One of Us Could Be at Risk
The statistics are sobering. According to the American Stroke Association, one in six people worldwide will have a stroke in their lifetime, and stroke claims a life every six seconds. Stroke is the number four cause of death, and the leading cause of adult disability in the United States.
Here in the Coachella Valley, there are as many as 15,000 people who are suffering from the results of stroke. Despite the staggering numbers, there is some good news. If you are a stroke survivor here in the Valley, you are able to avail yourself of the services provided by Stroke Recovery Center (SRC). We are the nation’s only free, comprehensive stroke and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) recovery center, and have been helping people recover their lives for the last 35 years.
