Memorial Satilla Health showed up for area students and teachers with its first We Show Up for Our Schools event. Colleagues partnered with YMCA of Waycross to show up for local students and teachers by stuffing 100 backpacks with all the supplies needed for classes beginning in August.

“School is right around the corner and these backpacks full of supplies are going to help each of these students start the year off right, equipped and ready to learn and succeed,” said Rusty Hall, YMCA CEO.

Memorial Satilla is proud to partner with community organizations and institutions to provide necessary supplies for our students and teachers to succeed throughout our community.

“We strive to give people healthier tomorrows, and we believe education is central to that. We’re honored to have helped so many students and teachers receive the support and supplies needed to start the school year strong,” said Dale Neely, Memorial Satilla CEO.

We Show Up for Our Schools is just one of many ways our organization supports students and teachers across the country. We are thankful to the local school systems and nonprofit organizations whose missions align with our own and have generously agreed to partner with us to generate an even greater impact on the communities we serve,” Neely adds.
