PRLog - Nov. 8, 2011 - ORMOND BEACH, Fla. -- DAYTONA BEACH – Florida Hospital Memorial Medical Center and Florida Hospital Oceanside, along with community partners the Daytona Beach Fire Department, Loves Whole Food Store and the Indigo Christian Junior Academy, collected 11,230 pounds of food during the hospital’s 10th annual Food Supply Drive to distribute to community charities in need.  

“This is by far the most we have collected in the 10 years we have been coordinating this event,” said Farzad Nourian, Chaplain at Florida Hospital Memorial Medical Center. “There is an increased number of residents who have lost their jobs and we are so proud of our employees and the local organizations who donated food to help our local neighbors in-need. It’s our mission at Florida Hospital to give as generously as we’re able to ensure that our community doesn’t go hungry.”

Charities who benefitted from the collected items include: Second Harvest Food Bank, the Jewish Federation, Halifax Urban Ministries, and the Seventh Day Adventist Pantry. In addition, donations will be given to a number of staff members and their families who are in need.

Florida Hospital Memorial Medical Center is part of the Florida Hospital Volusia/Flagler nonprofit hospital system with a mission to extend the healing ministry of Christ. In 2010, Florida Hospital Volusia/Flagler collectively contributed more than $107 million in benefits to the underprivileged, the community’s overall health and wellness and spiritual needs, and capital improvements.
