Camden innkeepers unite to serve health care workers

Apr 06, 2020

Innkeepers across Camden are serving breakfast to health care staff at Pen Bay Medical Center on April 7. Ten inns, all members of the Camden Premier Inns association, spent the weekend preparing 26 dozen, individually wrapped, baked goods for the doctors, nurses, tech workers, staff, and custodians at the local hospital.

“This is a great initiative with a lot of heart,” said Ted Weiss, president of Camden Premier Inns and owner of the Hawthorn Inn, who spent Sunday afternoon in his kitchen. “We’re pleased to help bake and enthused so many of our member inns have joined the effort.”

Rachael McCormick, director of community health improvement of Pen Bay Medical Center, said, “We continue to be inspired by the outpouring of support shown by our community. Our friends and neighbors have stepped forward in a major way, and it reminds us that we are in this together.”

On April 7, Peacock will drive to each inn to collect the items and deliver to Pen Bay Medical Center.
