Mitchell County Hospital Hosts Food Drive
Tuesday, December 16, 2014
In November, staff from Archbold’s Mitchell County Hospital, Medical Group of Mitchell County, Pelham Parkway Nursing Home, Camilla Pediatrics and Pelham Primary Care teamed up to host a food drive to benefit the less fortunate families of Mitchell County.
Jamie Womack, Mitchell County Hospital Assistant Administrator, said the idea of hosting a food drive originated from the hospital’s celebration committee, a newly formed committee composed of representatives from each department at the hospital and nursing homes.
“Our celebration committee helps plan reward, recognition and outreach activities for staff, and when they posed the idea to participate in a food drive, our staff was very eager to participate and give back to our community in this way,” said Womack. “This is an example of how our Archbold team of healthcare providers in Mitchell County remains focused on what is most important to our organization—taking care of the people in our community.”
All food collected during the food drive was donated to the Mitchell County Food Bank in Pelham and will be distributed to families in need during the holiday season.
