Hospice of Charleston launches food drive to benefit Lowcountry Food Bank
Staff members from Hospice of Charleston and the Hospice of Charleston Hospice Center will be blanketing the tri-county throughout August, distributing food collection bags and gathering donations for the Lowcountry Food Bank as part of the company’s eighth annual Food Drive.
As part of the Gentiva Health Services family of home health and hospice providers, employees at the Hospice of Charleston office and their fellow employees around the country are placing the food collection bags at various health care facilities in their respective communities and will collect their “harvest” during August. They are focused on beating last year’s national record, when the company’s seventh annual Food Drive yielded more than 382,702 pounds of goods across the country.
“We know that food banks, pantries and other charitable organizations continue to face increasing demands due to our troubling economy,” said Rosina Feagin, Hospice of Charleston’s executive director.
