Memorial Hermann Northeast Hospital Employees donate 6,000 pounds of food to HAAM

HUMBLE, TEXAS (June25, 2015)

Memorial Hermann Northeast Hospital employees and volunteers donated more than 6,000 pounds of food to Humble Area Assistance Ministries (HAAM) during the hospital’s Second Annual Summer Food Drive for HAAM.

“There are so many youngsters in our area during the summer who are dependent on meals when they’re out of school and not getting a school meal,” said Millie Garrison, executive director of HAAM.  “That’s why we’re so grateful to our Memorial Hermann Northeast friends for their generous contributions.”

In addition to donating food, Memorial Hermann Northeast employees donated $1,377 in cash to HAAM to purchase food at the Houston Food Bank.  

Memorial Hermann Northeast’s Partners in Caring (PIC) team and the hospital’s Chaplaincy Program coordinated the drive.  PIC team members Brittany Tinsley, Gwen Haws, Dawn Allen, Kimberly Stokes and Chaplain Andy Chao chaired the effort.  Chick-fil-A Deerbrook Mall provided free coffee and sandwiches to employees.

The Memorial Hermann Northeast PIC Team also sponsors a Back to School Supply Drive for Humble ISD as well as a Fall Food Drive and Holiday Toy Drive, both for HAAM.
