Aspirus Joins In Harvest Gathering Campaign

LAURIUM, Mich. – Aspirus Keweenaw Hospital and Clinics is partnering with the Michigan Harvest Gathering for another year, collecting non-perishable food items at all eight Aspirus locations in Laurium, Calumet, Houghton and Lake Linden. Aspirus employees, patients, and the community are invited to join in the effort to help provide food for local families in need.

The harvest gathering is an annual statewide campaign that raises food and funds for Michigan’s emergency food response. Aspirus is one of many local collection sites accepting donations through Friday, November 24. In addition to non-perishable food items, monetary donations are also welcome. All proceeds benefit the CLK Food Pantry.

“Partnering with the Michigan Harvest Gathering is something we’ve been doing for a number of years and it’s one of many great ways we come together to help give back to the community,” said Jenn Jenich-Laplander, marketing logistics coordinator with Aspirus. “This is especially important during the holidays. It makes a big difference in the lives of local families in need.”

Anyone interested in contributing to the harvest gathering is welcome to drop their donations off at any of Aspirus’ convenient locations:
