Gentiva launches food drive

Collections will benefit HOPE Southern Indiana Food Pantry

JEFFERSONVILLE — Staff members from the Gentiva Hospice office will be blanketing the community throughout August, distributing food collection bags and gathering donations for the HOPE Southern Indiana Food Pantry as part of the company’s Annual Food Drive.

As part of the Gentiva Health Services family of home health and hospice providers, employees at the Gentiva Hospice 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 the entire month of August. They are focused on beating last year’s national record, when the event yielded more than 396,360 pounds of goods for donation to charitable organizations across the country.

“As active members of the community, we know that food banks, pantries and other charitable organizations continue to face increasing demands due to our troubling economy,” said Bernadette Zucker, Executive Director. “We look forward to working with many area health organizations, and we encourage local health care providers to contact us for more information on how they and their employees can participate in this community effort.”

Gentiva Hospice provides a full range of hospice services to patients in Clark, Floyd, Harrison, Scott, Jackson, Washington, Orange, Lawrence and Crawford counties. Its Jeffersonville office is owned and operated by Gentiva Health Services, Inc., one of the nation’s leading providers of comprehensive home health and hospice services.

Area residents, physicians and referral sources who want to learn more about Gentiva’s hospice services should contact Lori Hall 812-284-2600. The Gentiva office is located at 391 Quartermaster Court in Jeffersonville.
