St. Vincent's Medical Center Kicks Off House of Hope

September 16, 2022

House of Hope St. Vincent’s Medical Center and Aquarion Water Company kicked off the 12th Annual “House of Hope” Food Drive with a blessing and ribbon cutting ceremony on Sep. 15. In an effort to fight hunger with healthy foods, the organizers ask specifically for donations of nutritious, non-perishable, non-expired items. Last year more than 10 tons of food were donated, and organizers hope to meet or surpass that total this year. The House of Hope Committee is taking a step beyond simply collecting food by attempting to educate both recipients and donors alike about healthy food choices. Suggestions for healthier food donations are listed on the back of all flyers supporting the drive. Running until Nov. 16, 2022, the House of Hope aims to help reduce hunger throughout the Greater Bridgeport area by addressing food insecurity. Non-perishable food donations can be dropped off at the House of Hope, located outside of the Main Entrance of St. Vincent’s. To make a monetary donation, you can Venmo @houseofhopefooddrive or visit the St. Vincent’s Credit Union.
