UH East Region Community Hospitals Collaborate with Greater Cleveland Food Bank to Provide Hunger-Free Holidays

University Hospitals (UH) east region community hospitals are collaborating with the Greater Cleveland Food Bank to provide hunger-free holidays for families in need.

Caregivers can voluntarily bring non-perishable food items when they report to work, and UH EMS vehicles will be transporting donations to the food bank.
