Christmas in July 2005

Storage warehouseCommunity Health Foundation participated in a Food Drive for SOURCE Care Management in July 2005.  We call it "Christmas in July".  CHF collected donations from various member organizations of Community Health Systems.  This was the second food drive for SOURCE and the response was phenomenal.  CHF even had to rent a storage building to hold the donations until they could be delivered.

We received food, clothing, adult diapers, box fans, furniture and cash donations.  Using the cash donations, we purchased additional food items, fans and some window-unit air conditioners to help these SOURCE patients through the intense summer heat.

Once all items were collected, boxes and bags were filled for previously identified SOURCE patients who have no family.  ECP Distributors, another member of Community Health Systems, aided the Foundation in distributing these items to each SOURCE office.  Each SOURCE office then distributed these items to the appropriate individual in their homes.

As always, the Foundation sends out a heartfelt thanks to all the wonderful people who participated in this program.  Because of your donations and efforts, we continue to make a positive difference in people's lives.
