History of Giving:

​Hanger’s heritage of charitable giving goes back to the company’s founding in the 1800s.  Over the years, clinicians and employees have consistently and generously donated millions of dollars in free care and financial contributions to a variety of causes, including hardship cases in their own communities.  Our founder James Edward Hanger set out to help others more than 150 years ago and, today, the Hanger company continues to see it as our responsibility and a privilege to further that legacy of giving back.
