LRH Hosts 3rd Annual Food Drive

January 12, 2010

Littleton Regional Hospital will host its 3rd Annual Food Drive from January 15 through February 15, 2010. All local food pantries will benefit from the generous donations from LRH staff, volunteers and visitors to Littleton Regional Hospital. Community members are welcome to drop off food items for those in need.

Emergency Department staff Donna Driscoll, RN, Cindy Fagnant, RN and Jean McGovern, RN coordinates the food drive and wanted to host the drive after the holidays because there are so many organizations, churches and individuals donating food during the holiday season and these donations drop off dramatically in January and February.

Donation boxes will be located throughout LRH on January 15th and food items can be dropped off at any entrance to LRH. The hospital's facilities team will make weekly trips delivering all of the donated items to local food pantries with the final drop off on February 15th.

The following is a list of suggested healthy food items and non-perishable items needed:

Protein items such as canned tuna or chicken and canned stews and pasta
Peanut butter
Canned fruits in light syrup
Applesauce
Canned vegetables
Tomato items - tomato paste, stewed tomatoes or tomato sauce
Soups
Healthy cereals
Oatmeal
Pasta
Rice
Shelf-Stable Milk
Powdered Milk
Baby Food
Infant cereals
Jars of baby food
Formula
Diapers
Any non-perishable items

Please keep the spirit of the holiday season and give a Gift of Food to support LRH's 3rd Annual Food Drive. Questions should be directed to (603) 444-9304.
