The Putnam County Hospital along with North and South Putnam FFA chapters held a food drive, 'Hope for a Super 2021', on Thursday, Jan. 26, which collected over 200 items.

Items were donated throughout the day at a drop-off location at the Surgery Center parking lot of the hospital from 7 a.m. -- 5 p.m.

North and South Putnam FFA chapters donated their time to collect their community service hours during the event as well as delivered donations to local food pantries. Sponsors for the event included the Banner Graphic, Horizon Hospice Care and WREB.

South Putnam chose to donate items to North Providence Baptist Church, North Putnam donated collected items to Roachdale Christian Church, baby items were donated to CareNet, and all non-food items were donated to St. Andrews Episcopal Church.
