HealthSouth Nittany Valley Rehabilitation Hospital is one of many in the community that’s joined Comfort Keepers in their drive to stop senior hunger.

In response to a growing need for awareness about senior hunger, Comfort Keepers has created the STOP Senior Hunger campaign, providing seniors with diet and nutrition information, encouragement and necessities.

Comfort Keepers has a goal to collect 10,000 pounds of food by Oct. 31. Anyone who would like to help the area STOP Senior Hunger campaign should contact Comfort Keepers office at 814-861-1600.

The food that’s collected will go to the area food banks.  On Facebook, if you “Like” Comfort Keepers of State College and Clearfield, Comfort Keepers will donate $5 to the food back of your choice.  They are donating up to $250 per food bank.

HealthSouth has food bins located in the hospital’s inpatient and outpatient lobbies in Pleasant Gap.  Comfort Keepers also has food collection bins at the following: Comfort Keepers, The Goddard School, County Market, Centre Home Care, Conemaugh Home Health, Philipsburg, Hearthside Nursing and Rehabilitation, Centre County YMCA, Philipsburg YMCA, Hall’s Market, Windy Hill Village, PennDOT and Medi-Home Health and Hospice.

HealthSouth Nittany Valley Rehabilitation Hospital in Pleasant Gap has collected more than 90 pounds of food so far for Comfort Keepers’ STOP Senior Hunger campaign.
