Morton Plant Mease Health Care Assists Community with Friend to Friend Program
01/06/2005

CLEARWATER, Fla. (October 21, 2003)--Grocery shopping, depositing and retrieving prescriptions from the pharmacy are activities of daily living that many community members cannot accomplish without help. Enter Morton Plant Mease Health Care's Friend to Friend program, which lends assistance to Pinellas and Pasco County residents with these all-important activities.

"Our Friend to Friend program promotes family volunteerism by pairing up parents with their high school age children in providing special assistance to this segment of the community," said Margie Harris, director of volunteer services for Morton Plant Mease Health Care. "This service is available to anyone with a short- or long-term need in both Pinellas and Pasco Counties."

To learn more about this service or to become a volunteer, call 727/734-6262.

Established in 1994, Morton Plant Mease Health Care is a joint venture between Morton Plant Hospital Association Inc. and Mease Hospitals dedicated to improving the health of all they serve through community-owned health services that set the standard for high quality, compassionate care.
