North Mississippi Medical Center Volunteer Services recently donated 672 canned goods to the Salvation Army of Tupelo and Northeast Mississippi after a successful Labor Day food drive.
The Volunteer Services Department asked hospital employees to bring red, white and blue cans of food to the lobby to help construct a flag display in honor of Labor Day. Employees, as well as a few hospital visitors, responded enthusiastically, completing the flag with several cans to spare.
To encourage a little friendly competition, Volunteer Services awarded a pizza party to the department that donated the most cans. Environmental Services won the party with 288 cans.
