Combat Hunger - November 5 - 16, 2012
Part of Mercy’s mission is to deliver compassion in all that we do. By supporting the Food Bank of Iowa, and through them the hungry and needy Iowans in the harshest months of the year, we are actively honoring this Core Value.
2012 marks Mercy’s ninth year participating in Combat Hunger, which has been occurring annually since 1991. In 2011 Mercy raised 10,865 pounds of food; our goal for 2012 is 12,000 pounds.
