AMORY -- Staff members from the Gentiva Home Health, Amory office, will be coordinating a food drive throughout August, distributing food collection bags and gathering donations for the Aberdeen "Loaves and Fishes" and Amory Food Pantry as part of the company's 8th Annual Food Drive.

A collection container will be located in the lobby of Pioneer Community Hospital of Aberdeen, in The Plaza at Pioneer Community Hospital, at Aberdeen Health Clinic, Dr. Norris Crump at 501 Chestnut Street, at J. Arthur Brown M.D. Family Medicine Clinic at 401 Chestnut Street and at Piggly Wiggly in Aberdeen for anyone to place their food donations.

In Amory you may drop off your food donations at Oak Tree Plantation at 60139 Cotton-Gin Port Road, Piggly Wiggly of Amory and the Gentiva Home Health office at 1225 Hwy. 278 East next to Star Printing.

As part of the Gentiva Health Services family of home health and hospice providers, employees at the Gentiva Home Health office and their fellow employees around the country are placing the food collection bags at various healthcare 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 company's 7th Annual Food Drive yielded more than 382,702 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 Kelly Mann Gentiva Home Health Amory Branch Director.

"We look forward to working with many area health organizations, and we encourage local healthcare providers to contact us for more information on how they and their employees can participate in this community effort."

Gentiva Home Health provides skilled nursing, physical and occupational therapies and related services to residents of Monroe, Chickasaw, Clay and 51 other counties in the state of Mississippi.

Its Amory office is owned and operated by Gentiva Health Services, Inc., one of the nation's leading providers of comprehensive home health and hospice services. While its Amory office is staffed by area professionals familiar with the health needs of community residents, Gentiva's national scope allows it to bring substantial resources to its local offices that other companies often cannot provide.

Area residents, physicians and referral sources who want to learn more about Gentiva Home Health's superior home health services should contact Kelly Mann at 1-866-533-8212. The Amory office is located at 1225 Highway 278 East, Amory.
