Roadrunner Markets has joined with BP to donate $15,000 to the Crumley House Brain Injury Rehabilitation Center in Limestone.

The agency will use the money to help with an expansion of the facility. At this point approximately $225,000 toward the total the $800,000 to $1 million cost of the expansion has been collected.

“Although this is a relatively new facility, we are already at capacity and have 150 people in need on our waiting list,” said executive director Gwen Edwards. “This donation means so much to us and to those who will receive services here in the new wing.

“As always, we are so thankful to our community and especially to this (Roadrunner) group.”

The Crumley House specializes in the rehabilitation of brain injury survivors. Currently 17 patients live on-site at the facility in apartment-like settings and another 35 come in during the day for outpatient care.

“We recognize the significance of what The Crumley House provides to area residents and their families working through the process of recovering from a brain injury,” said Ryan Broyles, president of Roadrunner Markets. “Our understanding is this facility receives very little government funding and relies mostly on donations from the community. Roadrunner Markets and BP are happy to do our part to help.

“We’d also like to thank BP for their willingness to join with us in making this donation. We have a long-standing partnership with BP, and we’re please that it will benefit a local charity.”

The Crumley House opened its doors in June of 1992 and provides services traumatic brain injury survivors through its day treatment rehabilitation program which includes vocational training, community re-entry, social and recreation activities.
