BALTIMORE --  Thanks to a very successful Thanksgiving food drive held by the Owings Mills offices of Chesapeake Urology Associates (CUA), the Hannah More Shelter in Reisterstown, Maryland was able to serve a plentiful Thanksgiving feast for the 65 homeless mothers and children staying there during the holiday.

The Chesapeake Urology staff delivered six turkeys, two hams, two pies and approximately 100 cans of food to the Hannah More homeless shelter the day before Thanksgiving.   The food was donated by staff, physicians and patients of Chesapeake Urology's offices located at 25 Crossroads Drive and The Prostate Center at 2 Park Center.

"The cook was sitting in the kitchen totally dejected because he had no meat to prepare for Thanksgiving, when we walked in with the turkeys and bags full of food, and he jumped up with surprise," explained Denise Williams, who works at the front desk of Chesapeake Urology's Prostate Center.

"The staff at Chesapeake Urology is like a family, and at holiday time, we realize that it's especially important for our family to reach out to families in need.  We have a passion for community service.  It is one of the core values of Chesapeake Urology, and the Thanksgiving drive is one of many year-round efforts," said Dr. Sanford Siegel, president of Chesapeake Urology Associates.

The success of the food drive has inspired the Chesapeake Urology staff to collect donations for a Christmas drive that will also go to the Hannah More Shelter.
