Jamestown Regional Medical Center collected more than 1,200 items at its drive-thru food drive on Dec. 10.
“We are so grateful to the community,” said Cindy Tag-Nygord, executive assistant and drive organizer. “They stepped up to help our most vulnerable. We’re also grateful for our Team JRMC. They stepped up to make this a success.”
The 12-hour drive-thru event also raised $155 in monetary donations, the equivalent of 310 items. With both cash and items donated, the hospital estimates it provided 1,517 food and nonperishable items to local families in need.
JRMC is especially thankful for its neighbor, Essentia Health, whose employees donated more than 150 items.
“This year has been a challenging one,” Tag-Nygord said. “We see it here and we see it in our neighbors and friends. Supporting hungry families is one way JRMC can continue to be the difference in the lives of those it serves.”
All proceeds benefited the Salvation Army in Jamestown.
