Spooner House picks up final holiday food delivery

Kate Pipa of Spooner House in Shelton picked up the last delivery of food from Rob Kee, Customer Service manager with Big Y in Monroe, made possible through the House of Hope food drive.

St. Vincent’s Medical Center again partnered with Aquarion Water Company through the 6th Annual House of Hope Food Drive and collected foodstuffs that helped stock area soup kitchens and food pantries with healthy foods for needy families during the holiday season. Organizers met recently with leaders of recipient organizations as they made their final pickups of food at Big Y in Monroe, which every year has generously doubled the amount of food purchased with cash donations.
