Mercy has paired up with the Lake Erie Crushers and Avon's All Pro Freight Systems to provide relief to people who were impacted by the destruction of Hurricane Sandy.
Mercy will accept canned goods at the Mercy Foundation of Lorain County office at Mercy Regional Medical Center in Lorain, Administration office at Mercy Allen Hospital in Oberlin and Center for Body, Mind and Spirit office at Mercy Cancer Center in Elyria between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday, Nov. 5 through Friday, Nov. 9.
For every five cans donated, participants will receive two home box vouchers, good for any Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday Lake Erie Crushers game next season.
Participants will also be entered into a raffle for a chance to win a suite at the Crushers stadium for one game for them and 15 guests courtesy of Mercy.
“Hurricane Sandy has caused widespread damage. Many individuals and families are finding themselves without basic needs,” Edwin Oley, CEO and President of Mercy, said. “It is part of Mercy’s core values to focus on service and as an organization, we want to do our part to help meet the needs of the community during this challenging time.”
