Kindred at Home Home Health Launches Annual Food Drive to Benefit Agape Family Life Center 

Team members from Kindred at Home Home Health Lowcountry branch will be canvassing the Beaufort and Jasper County area throughout August, distributing food collection bags and gathering donations for the Agape Family Life Center, one of many benefactors of Kindred at Home’s 14th Annual Food Drive. 

Kindred at Home and Kindred Hospice employees across the country are placing the food collection bags at healthcare and other facilities in their respective communities and will collect their “harvest” during the entire month of August. They are focused on beating the tally from last year, when the company’s annual food drive yielded more than 300,000 meals for donation to food banks and charitable organizations across the country.

“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 Felicia Jamison-Cheeks, MSW, LMSW, Medical Social Worker for Kindred at Home Home Health. “Making sure that the most basic component of good health, food, is available for those in need is the right thing to do for a healthcare company like Kindred at Home and for the community as a whole.”
