Bangor - One local hospital made a big donation to the Salvation Army today, after having employees collect canned food items for over a month.
Staff, volunteers, and visitors at St. Joseph Healthcare on Broadway brought in canned goods throughout the holiday season. These items were stacked in the shape of a tree and presented to the Salvation Army this morning. As part of its mission to help those in the community, it was the hospital's goal to improve food security for people in Maine.
The Salvation army will use the canned food items to stock the shelves at their food pantry which is available to those in need throughout the area.
