Local hospice collecting food donations during August
Staff members from the Gentiva Hospice Stockbridge office will be blanketing the community throughout August, distributing food collection bags and gathering donations for the Georgia Food and Resource Center and Miriam’s Sanctuary as part of the company’s Annual Food Drive. Employees at the Gentiva Hospice of Stockbridge office and their fellow employees around the country – part of the Kindred at Home family of home healthcare – 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. For more information about Gentiva Hospice’s services contact Executive Director, Karen Rodriguez. The Gentiva Hospice office is located at 216 Business Center Drive in Stockbridge.

Volunteer Information Session at Habitat ReStore
The community is invited to a Volunteer Information Session /Open House at the Habitat for Humanity ReStore in McDonough on Saturday, August 6, at 10:30 a.m. This presentation will focus on volunteering at the Habitat ReStore. The ReStore is located at 1465 Highway 20 West, McDonough 30253. Volunteers typically serve one 4-hour shift a week, but even just one or two shifts a month would be appreciated. The ReStore sells donated new and gently used furniture, household décor, appliances, and building supplies to the general public at prices greatly reduced from retail. Profits go to support Southern Crescent Habitat for Humanity as they provide affordable housing for families in the community who need it. For more information, or to register, contact Donnie Monk, Assistant Store Manager, at dmonk@habitat.org or 770-415-1603.
