Just after the holidays, the registered nurses of Anna Jaques Hospital volunteered their time to help restock the shelves of local food pantries and were amazed by the generosity of shoppers in Newburyport and Amesbury. The nurses set up outside Stop & Shop in Amesbury and Shaw’s in Newburyport and handed out lists of items that local food pantries needed the most. Shoppers then added some of those items to their grocery lists and handed off what they purchased on their way out.

The nurses filled several cars with groceries and also collected over $300 in cash. The donations will benefit two local food pantries, The Pettengill House in Salisbury and Our Neighbor’s Table in Amesbury.
