The MNA RNs at Lawrence General Hospital held a food drive at the Super Stop and Shop in Methuen on March 10 to support two local food pantries. The RNs, who feel that the spirit of giving and helping those in need should extend throughout the year, asked shoppers to purchase a few extra items and then donate them as they were leaving. The drive was a great success. More than 800 pounds of food was donated to the Neighbors in Need and Bread and Roses food pantries in Lawrence. According to Neighbors in Need, the collection would translate into 700 meals. The nurses wish to thank the citizens of greater Lawrence for their generosity.
