Danbury Hospital workers donate food for six pantries
DANBURY — Staff with Danbury Hospital recently helped filled nearly four vans of food for local pantries.
The drive was held in honor of National Hospital Week, which was May 10 through 16, said Carrie Amos, president of Jericho Partnership. Food went to six pantries, including Jericho, Victory Christian Center, Daily Bread and Interfaith Aids Ministry of Greater Danbury.
Jericho picked up the items, stored it and then representatives from the local food collaborative sorted and distributed the food, Amos said.
Hospital workers also provided grocery store gift cards, with plans to continue doing so as long as there is the need, she said.
Amos praised the hospital staff, who are on the front lines of the coronavirus pandemic, for giving back.
