We share a common goal with the staff from Advanced Orthopedic Pain Management & Wellness Center: to help people who are facing hunger. That's why, for the second year in a row, we worked together to hold a food drive that would help hundreds of people in Advanced Orthopedic's community.

This year, they wanted to help provided holiday meals for their neighbors in need, so we organized a Thanksgiving Food Drive at their office in Newport Beach, CA from November 14-27. Employees were asked to donate non-perishable items, such as cranberry sauce, gravy, canned vegetables, instant potatoes, and pie filling to help set the table for a family in need.

Over the course of two weeks, Advanced Orthopedic was able to collect 950+ pounds of food, which provided nearly 800 meals to those facing hunger! Thank you to bringpro for picking up and delivering the donations to Second Harvest Food Bank in Orange County.

More than 4 million people in California are food insecure, including 1 in 6 children. Thank you Advanced Orthopedic and bringpro for your continuous support!
