Memorial Health System employees support community charities
Memorial Health System is proud to share that even as the COVID-19 pandemic has taken a toll on health systems and their workforce across the country, our employees continue to go beyond the call of duty to support their local communities.
This year, Memorial Health System and employees at Sistersville General Hospital sponsored gifts for 23 children from families across Sistersville, Middlebourne, Paden City, and St. Marys. They also provided gift bags containing essential household items, snacks, and food to 21 senior citizens, and donated nearly $500 directly to the Friendly UMC’s Food Bank, the Pleasants County Neighborhood Network, and the Adam’s House Ministries to support local needs that continue to arise.
Brandon Chadock, Chief Administrative Officer at Sistersville General Hospital, said that although this has been a challenging year for our workforce, they rallied together to support their community through a very trying time for many families.
“This year’s giving has been nothing short of astonishing,” Chadock said. “Just last week, we called around looking for additional families to support due to the overwhelming donations. On that day, Andrew Tennant, Pastor of the Friendly UMC, had just received additional requests for help without any idea how the need would be met. The timing was divine.”
“We are humbled and so very proud to work beside such an amazing group of people.”
