What started out as an annual canned food drive for Food Share, turned into a major relief drive to help survivors of the deadly typhoon that killed an estimated 10,000 people in the Philippines.

A local practicing doctor who planned the food drive on Thursday, November 14 said, “We planned this event to welcome in the holidays and to give thanks for all the things we have to be thankful for,” said Dr. Suzanne Fussell, M.D., CEO, Healthwise Home Care Solutions, Inc. “When we heard about the typhoon that demolished and killed thousands in the Philippines, we asked ourselves, ‘What can we do to help?’”

“We decided to expand our drive and send food to the victims in the Philippines.”
