Tel Hai Retirement Community invites the community to participate in the ‘Annual Tel Hai Food Drive’ March 1-29, 2019, benefiting the Twin Valley Food Pantry in Morgantown, Pa. and the Honey Brook Food Pantry in Honey Brook, Pa. In conjunction with National Nutrition Month, Tel Hai is requesting the donation of non-perishable food items and supplies including canned tuna, peanut butter, cereals, pasta, rice, canned fruits & vegetables, laundry detergent, dish soap, bar soap, paper towels and toilet paper. There is a specific urgent need for the following items: ketchup, mustard, mayo and large diapers for children, sizes 4-6. Only non-expired, un-opened items will be accepted.
Non-perishable food and supply donations can be dropped off at the Garrett Community Center, StoneCroft Commons, and Auditorium/Chapel lobbies on the campus of Tel Hai.
One in six Americans find it difficult to physically and financially access foods and supplies that may nourish their body and keep them healthy. Food insecurity is a reality for our neighbors in the community in which we live and work. Hunger is not a short-term problem; lack of nutrition can create long-term problems from diabetes to heart disease.
Tel Hai Retirement Community, a nonprofit continuing care retirement community, has provided high quality and compassionate care since 1956. Tel Hai is located 3 short miles east of Route 10 off Beaver Dam Road. Follow Beaver Dam Road to the campus of Tel Hai, then turn onto Tel Hai Circle.
