For the past seven years, Holyoke chiropractor Dr. James McCann and his patients have donated 1,500 pounds of food to Kate’s Kitchen, a part of the Providence Ministry for the Needy.
On Tuesday, Dr. McCann and his staff delivered 265 pounds of food along with a $1,000 check to Kate’s Kitchen.
Dr. McCann, owner of Atlas Chiropractic in Holyoke, told 22News what motivates him to maintain this yearly drive.
“We all get older, and we all start thinking about how fortunate we are,” McCann said. “And how fortunate we’ve been in our lives. And we’d like to help those that are less fortunate, and don’t have the same opportunities that we have.”
Recently in order to collect donations, Dr. McCann waived his patients’ fees in return for donations of food or cash.
