Extending a hand to those in need, Methodist Charlton Medical Center donated more than 3,000 canned and dry goods to the DeSoto Food Pantry. This is the third year Methodist Charlton has forged this collective effort, which grows each year.

“Thanks to all of our staff for their hard work,” says National Cardiovascular Data Registry Site Coordinator Michael Merritt, who along with Nursing Director Evelina Echols-Sutton, coordinates the effort. “They really put in the effort for our local families, the pantry, and the shelters. It is examples like this that show the dedication of our employees here at Methodist Charlton and how awesome they are.”
