BAYTOWN— On Tuesday, November 23rd, San Jacinto Methodist Hospital employees distributed 85 Thanksgiving meals to families in need. The meals included a traditional turkey, sides, pies, cake and soft drinks.
Families receiving the meals were selected from Sterling High School, the hospital’s Partner in Education, and San Jacinto Elementary, a local Baytown school.

To purchase the meals, hospital employees collected money amongst their departments. The meals were distributed via an assembly line where families could pick out the sides, pies, cake and soft drinks that they preferred.
The meals were then hand delivered by San Jacinto Methodist Hospital Employees to the families’ vehicles, where there were many well wishers to send them off.
For those families unable to pick up their food, San Jacinto Methodist Hospital Employees delivered the meals to their homes.
