BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) -- Med Center Health held its annual "Stuff The Turkey" food drive today.
Employees from all of the facilities collected canned meats, instant noodle packages, powdered drink mixes, cereals and macaroni and cheese.
Volunteer Patrick Maloney says the event creates some friendly competition between the co-workers, and many gain memorable experiences from donating.
"We've had lots of great stories of people going to the stores to purchase items and making the cash register folks cry because of how much we're buying to give back to these communities and the people that need help this holiday season," Maloney says.
This year's grand total is 8,332 items and all of the donations collected by the Bowling Green entities will be donated to the Salvation Army.
