How To Help

Feeding Our Healthcare Heroes

Are you looking for a way to show appreciation for healthcare workers?  Please consider a donation to the Feeding Our Healthcare Heroes program. The goal of the program is to provide meals for essential associates working onsite at the hospital. The intent is to continue the program during the pandemic.

Here’s how the program works: If you are a food business and want to donate meals, contact the foundation office by email or call 785-587-5462.  It is important all donations be scheduled and coordinated. Your business will be recognized for the generous contribution.

If you are a business owner or individual who prefers to make a monetary donation to Feeding Our Healthcare Heroes, the preference is an online donation to the “Area of Greatness Need.” Checks may be made payable to Mercy Community Health Foundation and mailed to 1823 College Ave., Manhattan, KS, 66502.

The cost to provide a meal for all associates is approximately $300. Monetary donations at all levels are greatly appreciated and will be combined if necessary to provide as many meals as possible.

In addition to feeding our healthcare heroes, monetary donations to the program help our local economy by supporting our restaurants and food vendors. We know they are working hard as well, and this is a way we can give back in these unprecedented times. 

If you have any questions regarding the program or other medical supplies the hospital is accepting, please email Tina Rockhold, development director, or call 785-587-5462. Thank you for your support. TOGETHER we are taking care of our community!

Philanthropy, in its greatest sense, is to identify and exercise one's values and to show compassion, caring and a hope for future health and wellness in ourselves and in others. Simply making a donation to the Mercy Community Health Foundation exercises the desire to live in a healthy community and to support others in their quest for leading a healthy and fulfilling life. Donating ones resources is one way to leave an impact that has no limits. Speak with our Foundation Director today about giving options.
