LDS Charities donate to the Gordon Cummins District Hospital

The senior citizens at the Gordon Cummins District Hospital, Rock Hall, St. Thomas, now have six new wheeled commode chairs to assist with their comfort, and hygiene, thanks to Latter-day Saints Charities.

The commode chairs were handed over to the rural geriatric hospital, where 50 seniors are in full-time care, on May 19, 2020. The manager, Marcia Hoyte, expressed extreme gratitude to the Latter-day Saint Charities for all the donations received. “Ultimately,” she said, “we now have greater comfort, privacy and mobility for our very precious senior citizens.”
