"Our annual Turkey Trot is always a big success," said Mary Whidden, Wellness Coordinator, Linden Ponds.  "Food drive bins are out in both clubhouses and both people who live and work here can donate.  Linden Ponds and the Hingham/Hull Food Pantry have a great relationship and we enjoy helping them every year."
