Axes Gives Back: Mighty Oaks Foundation


Axes is a small, locally owned and operated physical therapy company serving our communities in the Greater St. Louis Missouri and Illinois area. We’re fortunate to be able to offer our services at 19 locations, with the mission to help as many people as possible. Our profession is all about helping others and giving back. Through the service of physical and occupational therapy, we give our patients’ their livelihoods, lifestyles, and abilities back. Since giving back is the fundamental reason that our organization exists, it was important to the ownership and staff of Axes Physical Therapy to make sure that we are doing all that we can to give back to the communities we love.

In 2022, we initiated the Axes Physical Therapy Foundation to amplify our charitable activities. Every month, we collaborate with a local charity chosen by our staff, contributing goods, funds, and essential items through our “Wear Jeans, Change Lives” initiative. This simple act allows our employees to contribute via payroll deduction, which is channeled directly into the Axes Foundation. As a token of thanks, our employees get to sport jeans every Friday! Together, we raised over $75,000 in 2023 alone!

The Mighty Oaks Foundation – Veteran Recovery Programs & SupportFor November 2023, in observance of Veteran’s Day, we’re delighted to partner with The Mighty Oaks Foundation, an organization that assists our Nation’s Warriors dealing with challenges related to the struggles of daily military life, combat deployments and the symptoms of post-traumatic stress. Previously, we have supported admirable organizations like The BackStoppers, Inc, Wounded Warrior Project, Needy Paws Rescue, CHADS’ Coalition for Mental Health, and now, we shift our focus to The Mighty Oaks Foundation.

The Mighty Oaks Foundation is a Veteran service organization that teaches combat Veterans struggling with Post Traumatic Stress how to get beyond combat trauma and live their lives. Many combat vets are unable to reintegrate back into civilian life, leaving their families to deal with the aftermath of broken homes and suicide at times. These Warriors are able to lead their families, their communities and our nation. Their calling is to serve and restore our nation’s Warriors and families, who have endured hardship through their service to America, and to help them find a new life purpose and our resiliency and peer-to-peer recovery programs.
