NORTH BALTIMORE - Briar Hill Health Campus, a local provider of senior health and living services, recently donated 2,755 pounds of food to the North Baltimore Food Pantry as part of their annual Independence from Hunger food drive held during the months of May through July.
Thanks to the generosity of the North Baltimore community members and local businesses, as well as Briar Hill employees who donated food, cash and personal time off to the cause, the city of North Baltimore will successfully contribute to the local fight against hunger.
The Independence from Hunger Food Drive is an annual, company-wide initiative of Briar Hill's parent company, Trilogy Health Services.
During the drive each of the 76 Trilogy communities participate and designate their own local food bank as the recipient. The company as a whole was able to donate over 700,000 pounds of food, an increase of over 50,000 pounds from last year's food drive.
North Baltimore Food Pantry is a non-profit charity serving the local area and is run by Director Ginny Brashear. North Baltimore Food Assistance program staff who accepted the food donation and a check were Richard Capelle, Tracy Mays, Marvin Krassow, Chuck Boesel, Colin Baird and Bud Straley.
