The Physical Therapy Leadership Guild at Creighton University was honored at the Heartland Hope Mission volunteer celebration earlier this year. Vice president and second-year physical therapy student Cydney Nagridge of Troy, Mich., and guild president and second-year physical therapy student Tessa Sirugo, of La Porte, Ind., accepted the Hope Heroes award on behalf of the guild. The award recognizes an organization’s outstanding service and dedication to Heartland Hope.
The Physical Therapy Leadership Guild works to promote campus and community service, implementing these values through volunteer work at the Heartland Hope Mission.
Guild president Sirugo is incredibly grateful for the time members have devoted to fulfilling the guild’s mission of service. “Know that your hard work and service is appreciated, and I can’t thank you all enough for your dedication to the Physical Therapy Leadership Guild,” Sirguo said to her fellow members.
The Heartland Hope Mission prides itself on being “more than just a pantry.” As a faith-based nonprofit, Heartland Hope Mission strives to help the working poor by supplying life’s most basic necessities. Such efforts include providing short-term support through their pantry, which offers food, hygiene items and clothing; and long-term support that includes prayer and financial education to assist people on the road to self-sufficiency.
