Stratford dentists hold food drive

Stratford dentists Dr. Mark Samuels and Dr. Joseph Jarmon recently held a food drive to help replenish the food pantry of local community center at Sterling House.
"Since its opening, Sterling House has been a mecca for young and old alike, and provides social, educational and recreational activities which assist them in their positive and healthy development," according to a statement.
In this hard economic climate, both Samuels and Jarmon believe that giving back to the community is more important than ever before, the statement said.
For Samuels, shown in photo, and Jarmon, the food drive to help feed those less fortunate "was a great way to give back to the community and help those in need. Many lined up to donate canned goods and other dry food items," the statement said.
With the help of their employees, patients and neighbors, Samuels and Jarmon were able to deliver more than $400 in non-perishable food items to the Sterling House food pantry.
"People helping people have been one of the prominent strengths of our country. During these hard economic times, the spirit of giving and helping is needed more than ever," the statement said.
