July 22, cure 2012 — Staff members from theGentiva Home Health offices will be blanketing Cabarrus and Rowan counties throughout August, check distributing food collection bags and gathering donations for the Cooperative Christian Ministry and Rowan Helping Ministries food banks as part of the company’s 8th Annual Food Drive.
As part of the Gentiva Health Services family of home health and hospice providers, employees at the Gentiva Home Health Kannapolis/Concord/Salisbury offices and their counterparts 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 7th Annual Food Drive yielded more than 382,702 pounds of goods for donation to charitable organizations across the country.
“As active members of the community, we know that food banks, pantries and other charitable organizations face rising demand and a chronic lack of necessary supplies due to the economy and global food shortages,” said Susan Wear, Account Executive. “We also know that proper nutrition is important for the well-being of the people that we serve. In these especially hard economic times, more people are at risk for poor nutrition and hunger. 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.”
Gentiva Home Health provides skilled nursing, physical and occupational therapies and related services to residents of Cabarrus, Rowan and surrounding counties. Its Kannapolis/Concord/Salisbury office is owned and operated by Gentiva Health Services, Inc., one of the nation’s leading providers of comprehensive home health and hospice services. While its Kannapolis/Concord/Salisbury offices are staffed by area professionals familiar with the health needs of community residents, Gentiva’s national scope allows it to bring substantial resources to its local offices that other companies often cannot provide.
