Franklin Co. Homecare and Public Health-Hampton
posted on Tuesday, August 1, 2017
After a quick trip to Dows it was on to Hampton where we stopped by two organizations, Franklin Co. Homecare and Franklin Co. Public Health, who provide invaluable services and care for their community. Both organizations serve families and individuals who are elderly, immobile, chronically ill, disabled, veterans or have limited income.
Upon arrival, our delivery crew unloaded 16 cases of pork loins -- that's 192 loins, or 960 pounds of pork!
Much like we believe that everyone deserves a good meal, so do the employees of Franklin Co. Homecare and Public Health. Their trained nurses and aids provide daily assistance for people who are in need and may not have the capability or means to buy or receive a meal otherwise.
"We have a lot of elderly people in the community who can't make regular trips to the grocery store and it can be really difficult for them to meet their basic needs," said Deb Jones, Coordinator for Franklin Co. Homecare. "Our nurses and aids do home deliveries regularly for community members who need the help. They'll be so happy when they receive one of these pork loins, especially since these are the only donation we receive. Everything else is purchased out of pocket, so we really appreciate this. Our clients will be so excited!" #HaulOutHunger #billionplus
