Staff from Bradford Regional Medical Center and Olean General Hospital are doing their part to eliminate hunger in the community this holiday season. BRMC’s Knock Out Hunger and OGH’s Rock Out Hunger food drives will benefit local food pantries. This year, the nursing departments took the lead to organize the event. The hospitals held contests where departments decorated grocery carts to collect non-perishable food items. Staff are then able to vote for their favorite cart. When the food drive ends, winners will receive prizes for best decorated cart and most food collected. “We really ramped up our annual food drive this year and our employees are having a lot of fun with it. It’s a great way for the staff to give back to the community that has given so much to us this year,” organizers said.
