Crozer-Keystone Kicks Off Holiday Food Drive
Temperatures are starting to drop, and so are the leaves. Fall is definitely here, heralding Halloween and, arguably, most people’s favorite holiday—Thanksgiving. At Crozer-Keystone Health System, Fall also signals the start of our annual Holiday Food Drive—an initiative designed to help our less-fortunate neighbors put a holiday meal on the table this Thanksgiving.
On Monday, Oct. 22, Crozer-Keystone embarked on a five-week campaign to collect donations of non-perishable food. All donations will go directly to the people of Delaware County via the following food banks: Community Action Agency/Chester Food Shelters; Life Center at 69th Street, Upper Darby; and Loaves and Fishes Food Pantry, Prospect Park.
Food should be packaged in cans, boxes, or plastic bottles/jars (no glass, please). Some examples include canned fruits/vegetables, instant mashed potatoes and gravy, dessert mixes, canned yams, tuna fish or canned meats, cereals, bottled water, peanut butter/jelly (in plastic jars), soups, and cranberry sauce. You may also donate a gift card to a local grocery store. Any donation, even one item, will go a long way to help our friends and neighbors who need us most.
Crozer-Keystone is the largest employer in Delaware County and a leader in community service. Please join us and donate to our food drive. Bins will be located in the Main Lobby of three of Crozer-Keystone’s hospitals (Community Hospital in Chester, Delaware County Memorial Hospital in Drexel Hill, and Springfield Hospital in Springfield); the Lobby of the Professional Office Building at Crozer-Chester Medical Center in Upland, outside the Volunteer Office at Taylor Hospital; and the Main Lobby of our Corporate office in Springfield. For security purposes, all lobbies will be under video surveillance.
