Gentiva Home Health launches Food Drive to Benefit Broken Wings

From press reports


Staff members from the Gentiva Home Health office will be blanketing the community and region throughout August, distributing food collection bags and gathering donations for Broken Wings as part of the company’s 9th Annual Food Drive.

As part of the Gentiva Health Services family of home health and hospice providers, employees at the Calhoun City office and their fellow employees around the country are placing the food collection bags at various healthcare facilities in their respective communities and will collect their “harvest” during the entire month of August. They are focused on beating last year’s national record, when the company’s 8th Annual Food Drive yielded more than 396,360 pounds of goods for donation to charitable organizations across the country. As active members of the community, we know that food banks and other charitable organizations continue to face increasing demands due to our troubling economy. We look forward to working with many area health organizations, and we encourage local healthcare providers to contact us for more information on how they and their employees can participate in this community effort.
