Moon Township, PA, (March 23, 2011)
In recognition of the growing issue of hunger in our communities, Heritage Valley Health System and FROGGY 104.3 FM are sponsoring a week-long “Dare to Care” community food drive at Heritage Valley’s ConvenientC
are walk-in clinics located inside five Walmart area stores in Cranberry, Chippewa, East Liverpool, Monaca and New Castle. Non-perishable food items can be dropped off at Heritage Valley ConvenientC
are locations in marked drop off boxes between March 29th and April 2nd.
According to the U.S. Census’s 2009 American Community Survey, approximately one out of every seven Pennsylvanians lives in poverty. This, coupled with the current economic pressures of unemployment and rising costs, result in less money for food. All food collected at Heritage Valley ConvenientCare locations will be donated to local food banks for distribution in the community where it was collected.
“We’re extremely proud to sponsor this community initiative, which complements the month-long employee food drive we’ve been conducting at our two hospital campuses and several of our satellite facilities,” said Norm Mitry, president and CEO, Heritage Valley Health System. “As a community health system we are aware of the needs of our friends and neighbors in the community and are eager to assist those in need, any way we can.”
