Advanced Orthopedic Chomps at the Bit to Host a Shark Week Food Drive!

August 6, 2018 | 3:54 pm | Written by

In July, we challenged everyone to celebrate Shark Week by hosting food drives to help fight hunger all across the nation!

Advanced Orthopedic Pain Management & Wellness Center of Newport Beach, CA sank their teeth right into this opportunity. Employees were encouraged to bring in donations of canned tuna and canned salmon, as well as any other non-perishable food items.

Advanced Orthopedic was able to collect more than 125 pounds of food for the Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County, which will provide more than 100 meals for their neighbors in need. Donations like this are so important to the local communities of California where 1 in 9 people are food insecure, including 1 in 6 children. Plus, canned tuna is one of the most highly-requested items by food banks nationwide due to the fact that it is rich in protein and easy to prepare!

A big thank you goes out to Advanced Orthopedic for hosting this jaw-some food drive at their office, and to the crew from bringpro for volunteering time to pick up donations and deliver them to the food bank! The fight against hunger would not be possible without you!

Are you ready to host your own food drive? Start planning today!
