Botsford News Release
Novi, Mich. (November 30, 2009)---Every Tuesday during December, the Botsford Center for Health Improvement will hold a food pantry donation drive that will benefit the Hospitality House Food Pantry in Walled Lake.
Members and guests are encouraged to bring in non-perishable food items with labels. For each donated item, Botsford Center for Health Improvement members will be entered to win a BCHI workout gear package, which includes a duffle bag with a lock, headphones, water bottle and a t-shirt. Guests will earn a one-day guest pass for each item donated.
The Botsford Center for Health Improvement is located at 39750 Grand River Ave. in Novi.
Monica Pagels, manager of the Botsford Center for Health Improvement, says, “This is the first food drive we have done, however, earlier this year, we did raise money for THAW (The Heat and Warmth Fund) by accepting pledges for exercise challenges. We also participate in Toys for Tots. Since we have been successful with these past charitable donations, a member approached us and asked if we would consider doing the food drive. We looked into the local food banks and the Hospitality House was very pleased to work with us.”
The Botsford Center for Health Improvement has almost 600 members that come through the doors each day and a database with more than 1,200 active members. Pagels says, “We have so many who are very generous and always willing to donate to the community.”
More than a health club, The Botsford Center for Health Improvement offers a comprehensive wellness approach integrating fitness, lifestyle and behavior management with medical and clinical practices. To learn more about the Botsford Center for Health Improvement or how you can donate an item to the food pantry drive, please call (248) 473-3100 or log on to www.botsford.org/bchi.
