"This outreach for support is two-fold," said Boerger. "It will expand the hospital's technological and endowment capacities and build a stronger relationship between the hospital and agricultural community."
Farmers have multiple options if they would like to participate. A donation from an acre of crops may be sent after the current year's harvest is complete, the grain elevator can send the donation after the current year's harvest is delivered, or a monetary donation can be sent at any time.
Farmers also have the option to have a support sign displayed on their property, either by their home or in front of their crops.
"The hospital would not be where it is today without philanthropic support from the community," said Mike Quilter, Foundation Board President. "The county has a rich history in agriculture and we look forward to working with our area growers to expand healthcare services at MCH."
Caring for Today and Tomorrow is a comprehensive campaign to raise $2 million to support information technology initiatives, finance equipment upgrades and expand endowment funds to assist under and uninsured patients.
Letters and donation forms are being mailed to area farmers. If you would like to receive a packet or need more information on the Acre of Crops program, please contact the Foundation office at 740-845-7056.
