Merit Health Biloxi gives back to Loaves and Fishes

The holiday season is well-known for being a time of thankfulness and generosity.

Getting in the spirit, Merit Health Biloxi made a $2,000 donation to a local charity in honor of its medical staff.

This December, their medical executive voted to donate to Loaves and Fishes, which is a local charity that has been helping those in need since 1983.

Loaves and Fishes was started by a group of churches and social organizations and has provided 31,000 meals in the year 2022.

Loaves and Fishes Treasurer Grant Curtis-Bell says the donation will help them buy more nutritious food for more giveaway bags. “Merit has been helping support that mission by the donation of these funds that we hope to use to better the food that we supply, and just the overall care for those in our community that need it.”

Curtis-Bell hopes the donation will help them find a permanent home to serve out of.
