For the third year running, employees of Conifer and CHI St. Mary’s Health, Nebraska City, CE, participated in the Healthy Over Hungry Cereal Drive sponsored by Conifer. This year, the collaboration resulted in 199.6 lbs. of cereal donated to the local food pantry, contributing to a total of more than 550 lbs. in the last three years.
The Healthy Over Hungry drive comes at a time when children can no longer count on schools for nutritious lunches and donations to local food banks are at their lowest point of the year.
“Hooray for all the kids that will benefit for these donations; they are the real winners,” said Dan Kelly, president of CHI St. Mary’s Health. “What a kind and generous bunch the St. Mary’s family is.”
