In recognition of February being National Canned Food Month, HSHS Home Care and Hospice Southern Illinois is teaming up with several community organizations to “Cram the Car” with non-perishable food items for the Bond County Food Pantry.
Help with the 6th annual “Cram the Cars” and drop off your non-perishable food items at HSHS Holy Family Hospital or any one of the below organizations:
Greenville Nursing and Rehabilitation Center – 400 E Hillview Ave.
Emerald Pointe Senior Living Community – 101 Honey Locust Ln.

Items can be dropped off Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Donations will be accepted the entire month of February. On February 28, HSHS Home Care and Hospice will CRAM the CARS with the donated items before delivering them to Catholic Urban Charities.
Some non-perishable items that the Bond County Food Pantry could use are:
Large boxes of instant oatmeal
Pancake mix and syrup
Canned fruit and vegetables
Shelf stable entrees
