LHSC holds Holiday Food Drive & Mitten Campaign

December 5, 2013

London Health Sciences Centre (LHSC) is proud of the role we play in our community and our staff, physicians, students and volunteers often extend the care we provide beyond our walls throughout the year. 

Through the generosity of staff, LHSC has already contributed nearly 2,500 lbs of food to the London Food Bank in 2013 during its spring and fall food drives. 

The Holiday Food Drive and Mitten Campaign launched in late November and runs until Dec. 18. For the fifth year in a row, the Mitten Campaign ensures those less fortunate in our community will be a little warmer during the cold winter months through donations of new or gently used mittens, scarves, gloves and hats which will be donated to the Children’s Aid Society of London & Middlesex. Food and mitten collection boxes are located throughout our hospital sites.  

Patients, visitors, and members of the community are invited to drop off their donations to the collection boxes located at:

  • University Hospital - main floor lobby
  • Victoria Hospital - outside Faye’s Café (level 3, zone D elevators), zone B atrium (Level 1) and zone E at the Tim Hortons (Level 2)
  • South Street Annex – 373 Hill St. entrance lobby
