FROM STAFF REPORTS
The staff from DaVita Healthcare Labs located in DeLand surprised Halifax Urban Ministries in Daytona Beach last month with over three shopping carts of donated food, diapers and baby items valued at more than $600 plus a cash donation of $115.
The items were used to help prevent homelessness of struggling area families living in poverty.
“Every dollar we can help people save on food and baby items leaves them another dollar of their hard-earned income to pay for housing and utilities,” stated a press release.
“This generated a lot of excitement with our employees. I don’t think there is anything that brings people together like reaching out in service to others,” said LeAnn Shaw of DaVita, organizer of the benefit drive.
“Our teammates recognized a need in our community and came together to support Halifax Urban Ministries. At DaVita, we are a community first and a company second. We are honored to be a part of and to give back to the Volusia county community,” Shaw added.
