Successful Food Drive by Carlisle Regional Medical Center Physician Practices to Benefit Project Share

CARLISLE, PA (December 5, 2021) – Nearly 2000 food items have been collected by the physician practices affiliated with Carlisle Regional Medical Center, as part of their “A Time of Giving” effort to help families in need in the greater Carlisle area.

“A Time of Giving” was a partnership with the practices and Project SHARE in Carlisle, where each practice collected food items from November 1 through November 16 in their office locations.

A total of 586 donations were collected by The Musculo-Skeletal Institute of Pennsylvania, followed by Carlisle Internal Medicine with 566 items. A monetary donation to the food drive will also be given to Project SHARE.

All items will be delivered to Project SHARE for distribution to individuals and families in need in the greater Carlisle area.

“We are so pleased with the outpouring of support from our physician practices and the community to help those in need during this busy holiday season,” said Teresa Frohm, Carlisle HMA Physician Management practice manager. “Joining forces with Project SHARE helped us connect with local families and help make the holiday season a little brighter.”

“We are thrilled with the success of the food drive,” said Elaine Livas, executive director of Project SHARE. “The food is much needed and will go directly into food bags for local, needy families for Christmas. All of these families count on the physicians, nurses, technicians and medical personnel of our community and trust them to help meet the needs of their family. They are true heroes. This collaboration and collection is a natural extension of that caring relationship.”
