CINCINNATI, April 1, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — CarePoint Partners,
one of the largest, fastest growing independent home infusion
therapy companies in the United States, launched a food drive today
throughout its twenty-one locations in eight states to help the
less fortunate in the communities where it operates. Called the
“Got Food?” campaign, the drive will be conducted throughout the
month of April. CarePoint Partners is partnering with its
healthcare provider customers like hospitals and doctors’ offices
to collect the food and is also using its offices as local drop-off
stations. All food collected is being donated to local food banks
for distribution to the needy.
The “Got Food?” campaign was inspired by the company’s Nutrition
Now program, which provides nutrition care in a home environment.
“We know that well-nourished people respond better to medical
treatment and report an improved quality of life,” says Nutrition
Now program manager, Marianne Duda, MS, RD, LD/N, CNSD. We are
hopeful that our food drive will not just feed the hungry, but will
also draw attention to the important role that nutrition plays for
those who suffer from related disorders.”
To make donations to the food drive, contact your local
CarePoint Partners office by finding the location closest to you on
their website at www.carepointpartners.com.
Results of the food drive will be announced in May 2011.
