PRO BONO OPPORTUNITIES
Blair E. Batson Children Hospital
MPA is currently accepting donations for the Blair E. Batson Children Hospital in Jackson, Mississippi. Donations will be accepted from now until December 1, 2014. Please contact a MPA board member should you wish to donate to this worthy cause.
1. Toiletries – Any type of toiletry such as soap, lotion, mouthwash, toothpaste, toothbrush, deodorant, wipes, and any other type of toiletries. This is much needed at both hospitals. Usually parents do not know when they are coming to Blair E. Batson, so the hospital provides the parents toiletries. This is very much needed; and/or
2. Magazines – Any type of magazines that are in good condition. Parents like to have them and read them. Sometimes they do not want to turn the television on after their son or daughter has drifted off to sleep, so they read magazines.
