Not many had heard of the word "derecho" before Monday, August 10. Little did our community know the impact it would have on so many.
Thanks to your donations to Mercy’s Employee Relief Fund, you have helped many employees affected by the storm’s devastation.
One employee donates to this fund every year to support their coworkers, and this year never thought they would need the support. They wrote, “I will never forget this kindness!”
Donate online now.
Now more than ever, Mercy’s mission, “to care for the sick and enhance the health of the communities we serve,” is even more meaningful. As we diligently prepare to tackle this unprecedented international crisis, one of our top priorities is the safety and health of our workers who will be caring for those affected by the COVID-19 virus.
In assessing their needs, we became aware that employees are experiencing their own financial struggles. NOW IS THE TIME TO SUPPORT THEM. To help provide relief and alleviate their stress, an EMPLOYEE RELIEF FUND has been created to provide support during this crucial period. Donations will be used for food, housing, childcare, transportation, etc.
Any size gift will make a huge impact. Please make a gift online or send a check to: Mercy Foundation, Attn: Employee Relief Fund, 701 10th Street SE, Cedar Rapids, IA 52403. Thank you for supporting our staff.
