MEDIA ADVISORY: North American Partners in Anesthesia Donates 600 Pounds of Food to San Diego Rescue Mission

MELVILLE, NY--(Marketwired - February 25, 2016) -  North American Partners in Anesthesia (NAPA), the largest single-specialty anesthesia and perioperative management company in the U.S., recently donated 600 pounds of non-perishable food to the San Diego Rescue Mission in San Diego, CA.

Corporate citizenship, community service and charitable activities are a hallmark of NAPA's core values; the organization strongly advocates green initiatives, including food recovery, recycling and the minimization of waste. The donation resulted from the availability of surplus food products from a NAPA-sponsored corporate event. Rather than allow the food to be discarded, NAPA directed the high-quality food be repurposed as a donation to the mission, where it would benefit local citizens in need.

The donation benefitted 400 men, women and children that participate in the San Diego Rescue Mission's life-saving programs. These programs include:

  • Residential Recovery Program: A 12-month program including  mental health and substance abuse therapy, educational classes and the  constant oversight needed to create a healthier, more stable existence.
  • Emergency Shelter for Women and Children: Provides women and children  housing, nutritious meals and clothing.
  • Recuperative Care: The Recuperative Care Unit is  one of the fewest places in the San Diego area to provide a place for  homeless individuals who have recently been released from the hospital but  still need proper medical attention.
  • Transitional Housing: 2nd Avenue Transitional Housing  is a multi-phase transitional housing program designed for single adults  working towards self-sufficiency.

For over 50 years, the San Diego Rescue Mission has been committed to assisting San Diego's homeless and poor populations. The non-profit, faith-based organization provides a safe environment for its population and presents them with opportunities to take control of their lives, find a new level of stability and return to their communities as fulfilled, contributing members of society.
