DERBY, Conn., April 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Griffin Hospital employees will donate 1,649 cases (27,900 cans, jars, packages) of food to the Spooner House homeless shelter and eight community food banks.

Representatives of the food banks will be at the Basement Systems warehouse for the delivery and to draw from the shipment items to stock their food banks.
