Food drive contest winners

Staff at Penticton Regional Hospital turned a holiday food drive into a friendly competition this Christmas to benefit the Salvation Army food bank. The different departments at PRH competed for bragging rights to see which could collect the most food per staff member. The winner was the Health Records Heavyweights, which brought in 9.8 kilograms per person. In total, the hospital turned over 1,689 kilograms in non-perishables for the food bank. Pictured left to right in the back row are Anne Morgenstern, the Sally Ann
