CATSKILL REGIONAL MEDICAL CENTER PRESS ROOM


CRMC AND NEW HOPE COMMUNITY TEAM UP FOR “TAKING CARE” PROJECT - 11/10/2010

November 10, 2010 - Harris, N.Y. - Catskill Regional Medical Center (CRMC) recently teamed up with New Hope Community to donate more than 800 food items to local food pantries. The project, titled "Taking Care", aimed to collect food for a day of balanced meals - breakfast, lunch and dinner. The food items collected included soup, canned fruit and vegetables, pasta and sauce, pancake mix, oatmeal and peanut butter and jelly. These items were placed in reusable "green" tote bags which also included a flyer on free cancer screening and recycling tips. The tote bags were delivered to local food pantries, including the Federation for the Homeless in Monticello, United Methodist Church in Hurleyville and St. Paul's Lutheran Church in Liberty.
