Sonora, CA – Sonora Regional Medical Center is holding its annual Food for Families food drive. Giving is easy; all you have to do is drop off non-perishable goods at the hospitals main entrance this Thursday, November 15th and Friday, November 16th.
SRMC’s Director of Development and Public Relations Gail Witzlesteiner says, “This year we decided that we would open it up to the community to participate with us. Last year, hospital employees raised more than 13,000 pounds of food. This year we are hoping to do at least that.”
Witzlesteiner says donations will be divided among the Amador-Tuolumne County Action Agency Food Bank (ATCAA), Interfaith Community Social Services, Adventist Community Services and the Red Church Pantry.
