Posted by Webmaster 7 on September 6, 2016 6:15 PM EDT
The Healthcare Collaborative food drive was a friendly competition between members of the Norfolk Healthcare Collaborative to see who could raise the most food during a critical period of time — the summer months. Employees, visitors and friends of each team brought in food donations. At the end of each team’s food drive, the Foodbank of SEVA sent a truck to collect the donations and weigh the total food collected. The goal was to raise awareness about food insecurity and help those in need!
