WOLMED’s mission is to take care of people physically and restore them to health, said Dr. Ed Wolski of WOLMED. Taking care of their need for nutritious food is a natural extension of our mission.
Denton, TX (PRWEB) May 20, 2013
In its 21st year, the National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC) hosted a highly successful nationwide food drive “Stamp Out Hunger.” WOLMED, a Denton-based pain relief clinic, proudly supported the local drive with their donation of $1000. That resulted in the equivalent of 4,000 pounds of food donated to the cause.
This year, the local drive—which benefits the Denton Community Food Center, the H.O.P.E. Food Bank in Aubrey and the Wise Area Relief Mission in Decatur—collected 51,705 pounds of food, a 34 percent increase over last year.
The drive comes at a time when the shelves of many food pantries begin to go bare, so a surge in donations provides a tremendous boost for these agencies that help thousands of North Texans.
“WOLMED’s mission is to take care of people physically and restore them to health,” said Dr. Ed Wolski of WOLMED. “Taking care of their need for nutritious food is a natural extension of our mission.”
The NALC Stamp Out Hunger food drive is a clear example of the community supporting each other, with letter carriers picking up donations from residents on their routes. WOLMED was also proud to supply and serve breakfast to the Denton Post Office Saturday morning before the letter carriers started their routes.
