Over the last year, the economic situation has intensified and has left thousands of local families in need of help. With Thanksgiving approaching, Chiro One Wellness Centers is joining the fight against hunger by hosting their 5th Annual ‘Share the Abundance’ Food Drive to collect non-perishable food items to be given to Feeding Illinois to help feed the hungry this holiday season. Beginning November 8th, you can assist by donating items such as peanut butter, tuna and other non-perishable food items at a Chiro One near you.
“Last year, we collected over 10,000 pounds of food and this year we want to increase that number to 15,000 pounds,” states Cynthia Barron, Director of Community Outreach, Chiro One Wellness Centers. “We are asking the public to help us help others by bringing in a non-perishable food item in November.”
