Community Makes Shrimp Peel an Appealing Event

Joseph Grant

The annual West Texas Rehabilitation Center’s Shrimp Peel on Tuesday’’s was a huge community success. The cooks boiled 450 pounds of shrimp for The West Texas Rehab Shrimp Peel in Sweetwater. There were over 530 tickets were sold. The event ran for two hours, from 6 to 8 p.m. and raised over $140,000. This year, such community generosity has allowed 145 children to go to camp. West Texas Rehabilitation Center, proudly serves children and adults across West Texas providing outpatient physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, audiology, orthotics, prosthetics, and hospice care. The mission of West Texas Rehabilitation Center is to improve the quality of life of those we serve regardless of financial circumstance.
The annual Sweetwater Shrimp Peel raises the money to sponsor our Abilene Camp Rehab. Every year West Texas Rehabilitation Center has summer day camps in Abilene and San Angelo that are 3 days long. They completely shut down their pediatrics departments and our clinicians, many staff, and countless volunteers join them in taking our kids to camp!
