Last week, 187 POUNDS of food were donated to Manna Food Center in Gaithersburg, Maryland. We exceeded our 2015 donation of 126 pounds too! Manna provides 6% of all food to residents in Montgomery County, Maryland, and an average of 3,750 households each month. Each Friday during the school year, 2,300 elementary school children in 58 public schools receive food from Manna to ensure that they will return to school on Monday properly nourished and ready to learn. Below is a photo of all of the food that was donated by US Wellness, and will ensure that friends in our community do not go hungry over the holidays.
On October 15th US Wellness supports a large retailer to launch their national “Wellness Day” by offering total cholesterol and glucose screenings in over 4,000 locations across the country. The wellness days were part of a national champagne to create health awareness and disease prevention by offering free health screenings and other wellness services. Blood pressure and low cost immunizations were also offered.
