Employees of Forest Park Medical Center Southlake and members of its leadership team, including CEO Charles Nasem, gathered alongside Southlake Mayor John Terrell at a food drive supporting the Grapevine Relief and Community Exchange (GRACE), a non-profit relief agency that provides assistance and vital necessities to those in need.

For the second year in a row, GRACE (Grapevine Relief And Community Exchange) and Forest Park Medical Center have joined forces to help give back to the community.  The Forest Park Southlake family participated in a hospital-wide food drive, provided more than 400 lbs of food to GRACE.  On December 15th, Charles Nasem, CEO of Forest Park Southlake, was joined by the Forest Park Southlake employees who gathered around the hospital’s Christmas tree, and toasted GRACE with hot cider and cocoa.

Accepting the donation on behalf of the GRACE Board was Southlake Mayor, John Terrell.  Mayor Terrell also accepted a token crystal bell for GRACE engraved,  “GRACE, for Answering the Bell in Our Community.”

The City of Southlake supports GRACE’s efforts in Southlake, Keller, and Colleyville.  For more information about the City’s community service organizations, please visit
