Those who visited Huntington Chiropractic Center on Valentine’s Day had the opportunity to donate food and funds for Love INC.

The center hosted its third annual “Spread The Love For Love INC Day” on Feb. 14. In exchange for donations to Love INC, the center provided free adjustments and new patient services.

The event raised $1,000 in cash and checks with an additional $200 worth of groceries brought to the clinic totaling $1,200 worth of food and funds to further the mission of Love In The Name of Christ.

Donations included boxed macaroni and cheese, spaghetti, cereal, canned green beans, potatoes and carrots, oatmeal and peanut butter.

Several community partners offered giveaways. Businesses included The Purviance House Bed & Breakfast (a complimentary night’s stay), Copper Chord Music (three $10 gift certificates), Turn The Page Books (three $10 gift certificates), Goodrich Quality Theatres (six gift certificates for concessions), Pizza Junction (four $5 gift certificates) and The Party Shop ($10 gift certificate).

Cindy Geders, Huntington Chiropractic Center practice representative, said free services were provided in exchange for donations to Love INC.

“I feel it is extremely important for us to be good community partners,” Geders said.

She said there are a lot of good organizations in Huntington and she said the business is blessed with patients and needs to pass on blessings.

“We want to thank the community for being aware of the need and being a good neighbor and stepping up and helping us,” Geders said.

Kelley Miller, Love INC food pantry coordinator, said the funds donated will help purchase food.

“It’s great to have local businesses involved and help get their clients aware of what is going on in the community,” Miller said.

Love INC offers a food pantry where people can receive free food twice a month.
