"I am once again overwhelmed by the generosity of our team at NHRMC," said Corey Yingling, food drive chairman. "System-wide, we collected more than 11,000 pounds of food to help nourish schoolchildren this summer. I am proud to be part of an organization that cares so much about the health and wellness of our communities."
