Business Hero: Jason Fitzgerald & Dee Physical Therapy

Since 2007, Jason Fitzgerald and Dee Physical Therapy have led the Dee PT Great Diaper Drive. Last year alone, Dee collected a record 30,000 diapers for families in COTS services. And, since 2007, they have donated more than 120,000 diapers from this monumental effort.

Jason and the team at Dee PT started this incredible diaper drive when they met with the staff at COTS and realized the astounding cost and unmet demand for disposable diapers. Diapers for one child alone can cost $60-$80 a month. By providing this resource, Jason and Dee PT meet a need for a child and help their parents save that money – and apply it toward housing and other expenses, like groceries and transportation. This is a true gift to struggling families.

The Dee PT Great Diaper Drive also does something more: I believe Jason might have missed his calling in marketing and communications! Jason is one-man marketing machine, spreading the word about the diaper drive. I am awed by his mastery of traditional and social media. His daily Facebook updates on the Diaper Drive inspire me – and I love that he gets the governor to make a personal delivery and yearly donation. Jason eloquently explains the need and shares the joy of volunteering. On behalf of everyone we serve, we are grateful.
