Kadlec Food Drive

Kadlec Regional Medical Center is hoping to help feed hungry families in the Tri-Cities this upcoming holiday season.

Hospital employees kicked off a food drive this afternoon.

To help generate interest in the food drive, volunteers created a 17 and a half foot long ship made entirely out of food.

The "USS Kadlec" will act as a drop off point for all the donations.

There will also be shopping carts throughout the hospital for people to place food into.

The food drive runs until next Friday, October 19th.
