GarverGives contribution boosts hospital drive
In what has become an annual holiday tradition, a GarverGives donation from Garver’s Jackson, Mississippi office benefited a toy drive held by the Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries & Parks Conservation Officers in support of a local children’s hospital.
A group of 10 employees in Garver’s Jackson office presented a $3,300 check that went to the Conservation Officers' “Stuff the Truck” toy drive, which was organized to provide support to the child life specialists at Batson Children’s Hospital in Jackson.
“As a father of two children, and the colleague of other parents, we share a common belief in helping Mississippi’s children any chance we get,” said Project Manager Wayne Black. “If we can help them take their minds off the situations that they are in – even for a short time – that is money well spent.”
It is the second consecutive year in which Garver has contributed to the Conservation Officers' event that benefits Mississippi’s lone children’s hospital. The “Stuff the Truck” drive supports the hospital’s annual toy drive that is put on by its child life specialists, who strive to provide education, support, and joy during each patient’s hospital stay.
