‘Kindred at Home’ Launches Food Drive

By Zach Hester, Reporter

FORT PAYNE, Ala. — Team members from Kindred at Home’s Fort Payne location will begin canvassing throughout Jackson, DeKalb and Cherokee counties to gather donations for CASA of Jackson County & Upper Sand Mountain Parrish. The organization will be distributing food-collecting bags and donations for the month of August to benefit Kindred at Home’s 15th Annual Food Drive. 

The food drive will benefit the organization’s work on behald of individuals and families in the community who are unable to access or afford an adequate amount of food.

Kindred at Home is the country’s largest provider of home health, hospice and community based services. Headquartered in Atlanta, GA, Kindred at Home’s 50,000 employees deliver high-quality care, including nursing along with physical and occupational therapies in more than 800 locations throughout 41 states.

“Our caregivers often tap into community resources to best serve our patients and their families, so they know firsthand the demand for assistance placed upon food banks, pantries and other charitable organizations,” said Myrilda Schultz, RN Clinical Home Health Specialist. “According to Feeding America, nearly 5 million senior citizens face hunger in our country and many are regularly faced with the difficult choice or buying food or paying for medical care. Ensuring that the most basic component of good health — food, is available for those in need is the right thing to do for a company like Kindred at Home and for the community as a whole.”
