Ace Hardware Bloomfield webDr. Edward Karl, left, and Tom LaRussa, manager of ACE Hardware in Bloomfield, hoist a container of can openers, a donation to the Joan C. Dauber Food Bank at St. Francis in Hartford.

The ACE Hardware store recently donated more than 200 can openers after learning that many of the food bank’s clients were unable to open the canned goods that they receive each month from the food bank.

The food bank is the first hospital-based food bank in the country and serves more than 1,200 families each month. (Photo submitted)
