Lutheran Hospital Employees Display Can-Do Attitude
Nearly 3,000 items expected to be delivered to Community Harvest Food Bank
FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Dec. 1, 2011) – It isn’t just a white blanket of snow that’s signaling the early arrival of winter. Organizations from all across the area are once again working to help make the holidays a little brighter for those in need.
That spirit of generosity will be on display at Lutheran Hospital Friday, Dec. 2, as representatives from the hospital’s nursing leadership group help load a truck from Community Harvest Food Bank with nearly 3,000 items collected during a month-long food drive. The exchange will take place at 9:30 a.m. at the Lutheran Heart Pavilion entrance on the I-69 side of the hospital.
"We are so grateful for the generosity and compassion that the nursing leadership group at Lutheran Hospital has shown to the folks in our area struggling to put food on the table right now," said Jane Avery, executive director, Community Harvest Food Bank of Northeast Indiana. "Food drives like this not only collect food for the hungry and allow others to give back, it also raises awareness that there is hunger in our community and that together we can alleviate it."
The theme of this year’s Lutheran food drive was “1 Can-Can Feed 1.” All associates who made a donation received a decorative card featuring a can-can doll to display in their unit.
