Successful Food Drive

6/10/2011

We all know what state the economy is, and there are many people who depend on local food banks to keep their family from going hungry. A food donation drive, recently held by the staff, physicians and volunteers successfully collected 5,365 pounds of packaged and canned foods for the needy.

The food drive was held during National Hospital Week from May 9-13. Twenty-nine cardboard containers, donated by Waste Management, were filled by hospital personnel. Hospital staff and volunteers spent two weeks collecting the food-filled containers and then sorting the foods for donation to four local charities.

The donated food will benefit clients and short term residents of Inland Valley Hope Partners, Pomona; Mercy House, Ontario; and, Neighborhood House in Chino. Also receiving food items was Inland Empire United Way for their Kids Pack Program for local, low-income school children.It was a labor of love and giving back to the community we serve!
