WAREHAM, Mass - The Tobey Hospital Guild recently presented a check in the amount of $1,000 to Damien's Place Food Pantry located at 3065 Cranberry Highway in East Wareham.

"The Tobey Guild is very pleased to assist Damien's Pantry in providing food to the greater Wareham community. The Guild‘s mission is to help raise funds for and render services to Tobey Hospital, and to help the hospital in promoting the health and welfare of the communities it serves." Joan M. Martin, Guild President, said. "Especially during this time of year, the Guild is especially grateful to have the capacity to provide assistance to those most in need."

Damien's Place was founded in 1992 by Father Gabriel Healy and Father Tom McElroy, to serve the needs of the less fortunate in the greater Wareham/New Bedford region. For more than 21 years, Damien's Place has upheld its mission to provide non-perishable food to families in need, so that no one has to go to bed hungry.
