The Memorial Hospital Foundation received a $9,000 grant from the Gulf Coast Community Foundation to fund improvements to the Memorial Breastfeeding Center. The project was supported by the Mississippi Hurricane Recovery Fund, a fund of the Gulf Coast Community Foundation. The funds allowed the Breastfeeding Center to offer a consultation area, a supply and display area, an office, and purchase a scale that can determine the actual amount of breast milk a baby received.
