WHITFIELD — Volunteers from Mt. Pleasant Missionary Baptist Church of Canton, MS, shared their time and talent on Dec. 9 to bring food, fun and joy to patients and residents at Mississippi State Hospital.  

Mt. Pleasant Missionary Baptist Church is one of more than 80 groups who will provide parties and activities to over 700 patients and residents at the hospital this holiday season.

“The outpouring of love and support from all of our volunteer groups adds so much to the lives of our patients and residents during this joyous time. It is greatly appreciated,” said Sheila Shows, Volunteer Services Director for the hospital.
