Bacot McCarty, Hancock Whitney Bank, and Singing River Foundation Thank COVID-19 Frontliners with Gift Cards to Restaurants – Supporting Healthcare Heroes and Jackson County Businesses.

Bacot McCarty Foundation and Hancock Whitney-Mississippi with the help of Singing River Health System Foundation feed frontline team members at Singing River Health System hospitals while supporting local businesses.

We are honored and privileged to be able to recognize the efforts of our community’s healthcare professionals while partnering with Hancock Whitney, Singing River Health System Foundation and many of our local restaurants. Collectively, we are able to make even more of a difference in this place we all call home.

Hancock Whitney-Mississippi believes this partnership among Singing River Health System Foundation, the Bacot McCarty Foundation, and Hancock Whitney is one way to show our appreciation to our healthcare heroes, support local businesses and their employees, and help sustain the resilient community spirit that has carried our region through literal and figurative storms for centuries.

We’re all in this fight together to beat COVID-19 and keep our communities strong. Our healthcare professionals are working selflessly to take care of us, and many restaurants have come up with creative ways to keep serving us.
