Today, March 30th, is National Doctor's Day! In celebration of Doctor's Day, the "Giving Tree" is located at Reynolds Rapid Care, this week, and has prevention packets hanging from its branches that include: a sunscreen, antibacterial wipes, and health related print materials.
The FRN would like to express our appreciation to all of the doctors practicing in Marshall County that serve our community on a daily basis!
Yesterday, we had the opportunity to host volunteers from Kohl's through the #KohlsCares Associates in Action Program. Kohl's employees helped the FRN pack 32 bags with hygiene and comfort items that will be distributed to children, ranging in age from 0-17, that are entering foster care placement.
Thank you to Kohl's for your generous donation and participation in the third consecutive year of the FRN's "Carry On" project, and to WTRF for covering this story!
In recognition of Doctor's Day, March 30th, the "Giving Tree" is making its second appearance at Reynolds Rapid Care this week. Make sure to stop by and grab a bag filled with a sunscreen stick, antibacterial wipes, print information on well visits, healthy eating, and other prevention related topics.
Please share the 2017 Marshall County Clean Up Schedule!
Used furniture, toys, bikes, and other household items can be dropped off at the Appalachian Outreach Inc. Warehouse in the old Giant Eagle building.
We are happy to announce we already have 9 "donor teams" signed up for the "Hunger Doesn't Take a Summer Vacation" Community Food Drive! Our two teams that brought in the most pounds from last year Reynolds Memorial Hospital and Happy Tails Pet Salon, along with Bayer HFCU, Garry Lewis DDS inc, Gold, Khourey and Turak, Parents as Teachers, the City of Moundsville, Noble Energy, and Chevron.
A tip for donor teams: Kroger offers "Free Friday Downloads" which are online coupons that allow you to get one free item to add to your order. This week the free item is "Cup of Noodles."
The Marshall County FRN will be holding its Second Annual "Hunger Doesn't Take a Summer Vacation" Community Wide Food Drive to support Marshall County food pantries, soup kitchens, backpack programs, and any organization providing food related assistance!
How can you help? We invite you to form a “donor team” within your business, group, or organization and take part in the Second Annual “Hunger Doesn’t Take a Summer Vacation” Community Food Drive. The Marshall County FRN will be hosting a meeting for all teams interested in supporting our neighbors that are working to address food challenges in our community. The meeting will take place at the Marshall County FRN, 1501 Second Street Moundsville, WV 26041, on Wednesday, April 5th, at 11:30 AM. Please RSVP by March 30th. Lunch will be provided.
Last year, with your help, we were able to support 12 organizations with the 9,100 pounds of food gathered from the drive! This year, our goal is 10,000 pounds of food and we are excited to get started!
