Home > Mercy News > Mercy launches Facebook fundraiser to help fight hunger
Published on June 04, 2012
Mercy Medical Center (Mercy)
and MercyCare Community Physicians (MercyCare) are launching a Facebook
campaign to help raise money for HACAP's Freedom from Hunger food drive.
Beginning today, Mercy and MercyCare will each donate $1 to the Freedom from
Hunger food drive for each "Like" either organization receives on their
respective Facebook pages, through July 4.
To participate, visit one of
Mercy's two Facebook pages or one of MercyCare’s nine clinic Facebook pages and
click the "Like" button at the top of the page. (See list below for specific
URLs.) Participants can "Like" multiple pages, which will increase the total
amount the organizations donate to Freedom from Hunger.
Freedom from Hunger, now in its
10th year, benefits the HACAP Food Reservoir, which serves 98
organizations throughout Eastern Iowa. The HACAP Food Reservoir is a member of
Feeding America, the nation's leading hunger-relief charity, and distributes
approximately 1.4 million pounds of food each year. Just one dollar enables
HACAP to buy 8.3 pounds of food for local families.
