Good Samaritan Employees once again support Merrill food pantry
Employees of Good Samaritan Health Center, Merrill recently completed their annual fund-raiser to support the Merrill Food Pantry.
In an annual effort organized by the Hospital's mission and values committee, hospital staff collected items for a raffle along with donations to raise $825 for the Merrill Food Pantry.
"It's great to get this level of support from the Hospital employees," said Dale and Jackie Kuck," co-chairs of the Merrill Food Pantry Board of Directors. "We rely heavily on these efforts as well as donations to purchase about $60,000 worth of items each year for families that really need it."
The Merrill Food Pantry relies on support from the employees of Good Samaritan as well as other members of the business community and area church's to support nearly 3,000 people from throughout Lincoln County each year.
