South Huntington, New York, Nov. 30, 2017…Apex Rehabilitation and Healthcare in South Huntington hosted food drive during the month of November. Staff and visitors filled two large bins with non-perishable food items to provide meals for local families in need. The food was donated to the Helping Hand Rescue Mission in Huntington Station. Located at 225 Broadway, the Mission’s food pantry is open every Tuesday – Friday, from 1 pm – 4 pm.

The Mission has a historical connection with Apex. Its founders, Reverend J.A. Gaines, his wife, Reverend Rose Marie Gaines, were at one time employed at Apex, then known as Berkshire Nursing Home, and lived for a time on the Apex property, according to their daughter, Reverend Kimberly Gaines-Gambino.

“Apex has been part of the fabric of this community for many decades, and through projects such as this food drive we are continuing in our long tradition of giving back to the local area,” said acting administrator Ari Silberstein.
