Topic:                             We would like to begin our weekly report each week with appreciation to Mr. Tracy Causey and the Capital Area Health Network transportation team for their show of support and collective solidarity as food as prescription bags were delivered to our pregnant, new baby delivered moms and breastfeeding mothers. During this time of social distancing and isolation and in compliance with the CDC guidelines, we will make home deliveries to our families so that they will have the necessary nutritious foods utilizing food as medicine. Our staff and drivers continue to follow the state mandated 6 feet distance so that they maintain a safe distance from our families while they provide this essential service. 

This week we had 2 home deliveries. On Tuesday we delivered our food is medicine bags to our moms as we do each week. On Wednesday we delivered our Coats and socks for tots Christmas delivery to our families with children between the ages of 0 – 5 years old. Due to the wonderful generosity of our community, individuals, and organizations, we were able to supply brand new coats, hats, diapers, socks and gloves for our children. On behalf of our entire staff and volunteers and most importantly the families we serve, we would like to thank everyone for the support this Christmas season. 

You can find more information on our programs on Facebook and Instagram. On behalf of Dr. Alice Freeman, the entire staff of Healthy Hearts Plus II and the families we serve, we say, “Thank You” for your unselfish love and act of kindness. We pray blessings of good health, peace of mind and total wellness for each of you. Please continue to be safe and well.
