Over 1,500 pounds of food was gathered in February in recognition of National Canned Food Month to benefit Catholic Charities. HSHS St. Anthony’s Memorial Hospital Home Care and Hospice Southern Illinois, Dan Hecht Chevrolet Toyota, Northside Ford Lincoln, and Roy Schimdt Honda teamed up to “Cram the Car” with canned goods to support the Catholic Charities Food Pantry. The third annual food drive collected 1,580 pounds of non-perishable goods throughout February.
“Thanks to the generous contributions of our HSHS St. Anthony’s Memorial Hospital colleagues and community members, this third annual ‘Cram the Car for Catholic Charities’ food drive was a success,” said Ashley Dillingham, HSHS Home Care and Hospice Southern Illinois Marketing Specialist. “The food we were able to collect was much appreciated by Catholic Charities and will be used to help families in our area.”
Dillingham thanked Tammy Pike, with Dan Hecht Chevrolet Toyota; Jake Traub with Northside Ford; Doug Mette with Roy Schmidt Honda, and their staff for working with HSHS Home Care and Hospice Southern Illinois in making “Cram the Car” a success this year.
