FastMed “Share the Health” Drive in Arizona Supports The Salvation Army to Collect Clothing, Canned Food and Toys at Health Clinics

Gilbert, AZ – December 17, 2013 – FastMed Urgent Care launched the Share the Health drive to support The Salvation Army in collecting clothing, canned food and toy donations for those in need during the holidays at 24 FastMed locations throughout Arizona.

“Many people in our community skip meals to help make ends meet, and toys and clothing can be so out of reach” said Michael P. Dunn, MD, President and Chief Medical Officer, FastMed Urgent Care in Arizona, “We decided to leverage the fact that FastMed has the most urgent care locations in Arizona, so it seemed like a perfect collection system to support The Salvation Army’s work.”

Donors are asked to drop off clothing, canned goods and toys in specially designation collection bins in the lobbies of FastMed clinics or Administrative Office. The Share the Health drive is running now through and January 15, 2014. Most FastMed Urgent Care clinics are open to receive donations 8 am to 8 pm Monday through Saturday, and 8 am to 4 pm Sunday. Please visit www.fastmed.com for specific location hours.

Dunn explained that the Share the Health program takes a holistic approach to health, both physical health with food and clothing, and emotional health with toys for children at this important time of year, which is good for the whole family.  For questions or for more information, please your local FastMed Urgent Care or email: az_market@fastmed.com.
