The Englewood neighborhood is a buzz around the March 20 opening of the Health Center located at 5501 S. Halsted Street. In anticipation of this much needed addition to the community, team members have been in full effect throughout the neighborhood during the month of February. In partnership with different community groups including Teamwork Englewood and Whole Foods, Heartland Alliance Health (HAH) is poised for a successful opening with a number of participant appointments already scheduled!
In addition to HAH outreach teams canvassing the neighborhood and spreading the word, community members got to learn more and engage with staff who provided informational materials and promotional giveaways at the Englewood Whole Foods location. Additionally, people visiting the store were invited to attend a healthy fare cooking demonstration presented by a HAH dietician where attendees learned to prepare Thai peanut chicken zucchini noodles.
Shoppers also had another way to engage with Heartland Alliance through Whole Foods’ cause marketing promotion, Soap for Good. From February 21-27, Whole Foods stores throughout Chicagoland sold Alafia’s Good Soap for just $1. During this time, shoppers could buy a bar of soap for themselves and another for Heartland Alliance. To make it even better, each Whole Foods store will match the soap donated to Heartland Alliance, up to 100 bars. Whole Foods’ 13 Chicagoland area stores will be contributing nearly 5,000 bars for participants in need, with the Englewood store leading the area in sales and donations.
The Heartland Alliance Health Englewood Health Center is slated to open March 20, 2018 with office hours of Monday through Friday 8:30 AM- 5:00 PM. Appointments can be made by calling 773-275-2586 and walk-ins are welcome.
