On Saturday, December 18 from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM, Magee Rehabilitation Hospital will partner with United Way of Southeastern Pennsylvania for the Live United movement. Magee Rehabilitation Hospital will be volunteering at the SHARE Food Program Inc. at 2901 W. Hunting Park Ave which will contribute to Magee Rehabilitation Hospital’s first ever “Magee Day of Caring” for United Way’s 365 Days of Caring.

Magee Rehabilitation Hospital will be working on site at the SHARE Food Center preparing basic food packages. The SHARE (Self Help and Resource Exchange) Food Program is a nonprofit organization serving a regional network of community organizations engaged in food distribution, education and advocacy. SHARE promotes healthy living by providing affordable wholesome food to those willing to contribute through volunteerism.

Magee Rehabilitation Hospital is part of United Way’s LIVE UNITED movement to advance the common good throughout the region. Because United Way’s mission requires year-round work to make sure that children are succeeding in school, families have the income to remain independent and seniors have the supports they need for healthy aging, United Way needs the help of volunteers to support that goal by donating their time and talent at area agencies – year round.

As part of 365 Days of Caring, United Way is asking area organizations to volunteer as a team to help bring about real and lasting change to thousands of children, families and seniors in our region. For more information on how to get involved visit: www.LIVEUNITEDPhilly.org/daysofcaring or contact Venus Bradley by e-mail, Vbradley@Mageerehab.org or by phone, 215.587.3146 to join the movement at Magee.

Please join us for this important community event. Free parking is available.
