Cassopolis Family Clinic Network Donates to Local Food Pantry

Cassopolis, MI, November 15, 2017 – The holidays are a time of family, food, and generosity. “People come to us for affordable healthcare, but their needs are far greater. Many people need food to feed their families,” said Mary Geegan Middleton, CEO of Cassopolis Family Clinic Network (CFCN). This holiday season, CFCN is taking its’ slogan ‘Our Family. Caring For Yours.’ a step further and giving back to its’ community by donating $1,000 worth of nonperishable items to a local food pantry – Helping Hands of Cass County.
