Sheridan Memorial Hospital staff are very grateful for all the wonderful things our community has done for us during the pandemic. There have been so many businesses, organizations, and individuals who have given to us, that Chad Slyngstad, one of the house supervisors at the hospital, brought up the idea of a community food drive.
So during June, the SMH Gives Back Food Drive was held. Staff donated two full pickup loads of food which were distributed to The Food Group, People Assistance Food Bank, and the Salvation Army in early July.
After the food was delivered, some SMH staff picked a day to volunteer to help The Food Group as a team-building experience. They enjoyed the experience of organizing, sorting, and bagging the food, as well as learning the nutritional needs in our community.
Overall, SMH staff had a great time during the food drive and we look forward to more food drives in the future!
