PUTNAM, CT – During National Nurse’s Week, a group of Day Kimball Healthcare’s nurses held a food drive at WINY in Putnam to help the community eat well and assist those in need. The goal of the drive was to fill a stretcher and a wheel chair with food or donations for the local food banks.

The food drive was a great success and nearly 40 bags of groceries and $416 in cash were donated. The nurses donated the collections to four local food banks, St. Joseph Food Pantry in North Grosvenordale, the Daily Bread in Putnam, TEEG in North Grosvenordale and ACCESS in Danielson. Nurse, Elaine Ducharme, coordinated the drive and Gary Osbrey at WINY promoted the event and allowed Day Kimball to collect donations outside of the radio station.
