Advanced Pain Management's Pain Center of Wisconsin-Franklin to Kick Off Community Service Challenge May 1

April 29, 2010

During the month of May, the physicians and staff at Advanced Pain Management (APM) Pain Center of Wisconsin-Franklin will be collecting non-perishable food items benefitting the Hunger Task Force. The staff will also host a blood drive on Thursday, May 13, in conjunction with the BloodCenter of Wisconsin. The volunteer efforts are part of APM’s “Community Service Challenge,” a business-wide community outreach project that encourages employees’ involvement in community service events, charities and initiatives throughout the month of May.

 

“Advanced Pain Management challenged each of our clinics to find a way to give back to the local community,” said Amy Miskelley, RN Coordinator at APM’s Pain Center of Wisconsin-Franklin. “We wanted to volunteer our efforts and time to worthy, local causes, and we thought the BloodCenter and Hunger Task Force were great organizations to support, and we’re looking forward to getting started.”

 

The public is also invited to drop off non-perishable food items to the clinic for the month-long food drive. The blood drive will be held at the Franklin location at 4202 W Oakwood Park Ct. from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. According to the BloodCenter, eligible donors are at least 17 years old, weigh at least 110 pounds, free of major colds, flu or allergy symptoms. To learn more, please visit the BCW’s eligibility site.

 

Through collection, testing, treatment and research, The BloodCenter of Wisconsin helps bring hope and healing to our coworkers, neighbors, friends and families through collection, testing, treatment and research. The Hunger Task Force is an anti-hunger organization that believes every person has a right to adequate food obtained with dignity.
