“Everyone needs a little help from time to time,” said Althea LaCour, Hospital Auxiliary president at WJMC. “With our hospital family, we know we can show our love of neighbor and care and concern for those impacted by the severe flooding. Many people in the impacted communities helped our families after Hurricane Katrina and the storms which followed. Today, they need more than a little help. We thank you in advance for your contributions during Operation Neighbor 2016.”
