"Together We CAN Make a Difference" - Canned Food Drive for the Homeless of Central Indiana
The Jane Pauley Community Health Center Partners with Four Homeless Shelters to Feed the Homeless During the Global Pandemic
Indianapolis, Ind., August 10, 2020 through September 18, 2020— The Jane Pauley Community Health Center (JPCHC) is holding a canned food drive to benefit the homeless population in the communities they serve. They are inviting their employees, family and friends, patients, and anyone with a heart for giving to assist with the canned food drive. This is a great opportunity to give back to those who are struggling with homelessness for as little as twenty-six cents per can. You can drop off your donation to any JPCHC location; masks must be worn when entering any health center.
Marc Hackett, the CEO of the Jane Pauley Community Health Center said, "As a not-for-profit, we are proud to partner with Wheeler Mission, The Christian Center, Hope House and The Refuge in our ongoing efforts to help give back to the underserved in our community."
As a Federally Qualified Health Center, JPCHC offers comprehensive healthcare services to the communities served, regardless of insurance status, by providing family medicine, pediatrics, OB/GYN, behavioral health, and dental services. The organization was established in 2009 with generous support from the Metropolitan School District of Warren Township, Community Health Network, and the Community Health Network Foundation. They currently serve patients from thirteen sites of care across four Indiana counties. It is named after Jane Pauley, a 1968 Warren Central High School graduate who is well-known as the former anchor of NBC-TV's "Today" and "Dateline" programs; she is the current host of "CBS Sunday Morning."
JPCHC is partnering with four homeless shelters/donation centers for this canned food drive, hoping they will be able to touch the lives of many, not only by providing much-needed healthcare, but also to fill families' tummies. In the Indianapolis area, they are partnering with Wheeler Mission as well as moving down to the south side, by working with The Refuge. Working with both Hancock and Shelby counties, Hope House is serving those in need. In Madison County, The Christian Center is expanding and serving the homeless population and working with JPCHC to assist families. Donate today and help feed those in need! Because "Together, We CAN Make a Difference!"
