Hagerstown Medical Lab collects food for food banks

June 27, 2009

During National Medical Laboratory Professionals Week, April 20 to 25, Hagerstown Medical Laboratory's employees conducted food drives at their nine patient service centers in Frederick and Washington counties.

Nearly 400 pounds of nonperishable food was collected and donated to the food banks operating in the same counties where the lab's patient service centers operate.

The recipient in Washington County was Food Resources Inc. and in Frederick County, the food bank operated by the Frederick Community Action Agency was the recipient.

This is the first year Hagerstown Medical Lab's employees have sponsored a food drive.

"The food drive was a very positive experience for the lab, so we have decided to sponsor the event every year in conjunction with the annual lab week celebration," said Roger Hines, administrative director.
