Princeton Health Gives Back—Hunger Knows No Season
Thank you to all the employees, volunteers and physicians who contributed to Penn Medicine Princeton Health’s 6th annual food drive. Donations at Princeton Medical Center (PMC) benefited the Plainsboro Food Pantry, while other Princeton Health locations had the option to support feeding programs in their communities.
Fifteen storage boxes packed with non-perishable foods, personal care items and cleaning products were delivered to Plainsboro last week.
Pictured above, Charles Thompson, Automotive Services, who handles the delivery each year; Joanne Banner, Human Resources Client Service Manager, who coordinates the annual food drive; and Erum Ladak, Plainsboro Food Pantry Clerk. Princeton Health chose to hold the food drive in the spring this year because local food pantries have a greater need for donations at times other than the holiday season. Many people donate items during the holidays, but the need exists throughout the year.
