The various departments of Mena Regional Health System recently collected items for their annual “Santa For Soldiers” project. Each department filled several priority boxes to be shipped with items from the soldier’s wish list. The boxes collected will be shipped to troops that have been deployed overseas. “Santa For Soldiers is one of several charitable projects the MRHS employees participate in each year and continues to be a tremendous success. The employees are eager to show their appreciation to our troops who are so willing to serve our county. Many servicemen/women are unable to enjoy Christmas with their families. It is our hope that the packages will bring them joy this holiday season,” said Sonya Maye, MRHS Marketing/Public Relations Director.
