Kudos to local chiropractor/patients for helping to feed the hungry

John Reed, Director of Operations at Food Gatherers in Ann Arbor, just sent a note of thanks to Saline Family Chiropractic for the food drive they held in their office last month. 

Turns out, Dr. Paquin and his staff collected a whopping 1133 pounds of food during the drive.  That makes a nice dent in the 16,000 pounds of food Food Gatherers distributes on a given day.

Not only did SFC ask their patients to contribute, but with the help of other area businesses, they provided incentive to donate with drawings for prizes.  The big prize was a 42" Panasonic Plasma TV!  Businesses who supported the effort were Max & Erma's, Mac's Acadian Seafood, Macaroni Grill, Nature's Garden Center, Maplewood Lanes and Prickly Pear.

I don't know about you, but I like to spend my money at businesses I know are giving back to the community, and fighting to beat hunger is one cause I will promote every time!

Big kudos to Saline Family Chiropractic and all those who participated in a very successful food drive.  Thanks to all of you, we can continue to keep families fed, one meal at a time.
