Gulf Coast Association of REALTORS® Donates Gift Cards to Gulfport Memorial

(Gulfport, MS. – January 9, 2018): On Friday, January 5th, the Gulf Coast Association of REALTORS®(GCAR) presented the Memorial Hospital Foundation with a donation of gift cards for Memorial patients. The gift cards will assist Memorial’s pediatric and oncology patients who have had a hardship.

“GCAR was so honored to have this opportunity to give back to children in our community in a different way than we usually do,” said GCAR Director, Nicole Nezat. “We hope that these gift cards will help bring light to those going through a tough time, and give families the chance to have fun together and not think about hospital stays and expenses.”

“There are many individuals and families who are dealing with intensive medical treatments and life changing or threatening illnesses.  The physical and financial demands allow little chance to participate in something recreational. To be able to provide a brief opportunity to enjoy an outing and escape their medical worries is priceless!”, said Dana Burton, Social Services Coordinator at Memorial Hospital at Gulfport.

The gift cards were presented to GCAR to donate through David Pilger with Pilger Title Company.
