You will find that our services extend beyond healthcare, and outside our building walls. Upholding our mission and values, we continually reach out to support our community, including those less fortunate. The programs described below are just a sample of various ways Mercy demonstrates stewardship, excellence, compassion, respect, and concern for the poor.
Angel of Mercy Tree
An annual holiday event sponsored by Mercy, in conjunction with the Salvation Army, Books-A-Million, and Radio Dubuque - encouraging Christmas shoppers to purchase and donate items for area needy children. If you would like to help put a smile on a child's face this Christmas, please bring a toy, unwrapped, in the range of $10-$25 for a child 1- 12 years of age, to one of the trees on display - inside Books-A-Million (Kennedy Mall) until Sunday, December 2, and at Mercy until Friday, December 7. Qualified families pre-screened through Salvation Army will be able to "shop" for the right toy for their child. Gifts of cash are also welcome and will be used in full to purchase toys for needy children.
Caring for the Community
An annual service project of Mercy Patient Care Services, where staff raise funds and gather various supplies through collections to assist a local community agency. During this year's (2012) project, 45 boxes of goods and $2,382.48 in cash donations were delivered to the Dubuque Community Y Domestic Violence Program. Dyersville raised $402 and two large boxes of food and items for the Dyersville Food Pantry.
