Fundraiser for Food Bank of Siouxland to be held by Britton Chiropractic
AKRON — Britton Chiropractic & Rehab Clinic of Akron is hosting a fundraiser for Food Bank of Siouxland. Through April 2018, Dr. Britton is donating 100 percent of all new patient examination fees to Food Bank of Siouxland.
“It is always so great when members of our community step up to help their neighbors,” expressed Food Bank of Siouxland Executive Director Linda Scheid. “We are grateful for businesses and individuals, like Dr. Britton, that want to give back and help the 26,150 food insecure individuals, including 11,210 food insecure children living in out 11 Siouxland counties.”
“We are excited to partner with Food Bank of Siouxland. This organization does a great amount of good for our communities,” said Dr. Britton. “When a new patient presents to the office, we will donate 100 percent of the new patient examination fee to Food Bank of Siouxland. It is awesome that the $40 exam fee will be turned into 520 pounds of food for those in need.”
Food Bank of Siouxland serves 11 Siouxland counties: Woodbury, Plymouth, Sioux, Lyon, Cherokee, Ida, Monona, and Crawford in Iowa; Dakota, Thurston, and Burt in Nebraska.
Three important direct service programs help target children and families in need. Their BackPack Program: Food for Kids provides weekend meal sacks for children in nine local elementary schools to help them get through the weekend. The Mobile Pantry Program: Food to You helps serve rural communities by bringing food to those who need it in surrounding counties. And the new Mobile School Pantry: Food for Families provides families an opportunity to receive food in a Farmer’s Market style at their school once a month.
