The drive is sponsored by the Mercyhealth Developmental Foundation, according to a news release. Donors and guests will enjoy a visit and special gift from Santa Claus.
Monetary donations or gas gift cards can be dropped off at the drive-thru event or by going to donate.mercyhealthsystem.org and choosing Ronald McDonald Care Mobile in the “Direct my gift” dropdown menu. Sponsors who donate $250 or more will have their name or logo placed on signage at the event.
All monetary donations will support the Ronald McDonald Care Mobile, a doctor’s office on wheels that provides free preventive health care to children who are uninsured, underinsured or receive Medicaid or state care. Services include immunizations, screenings, physicals and well-child exams conducted by a Mercyhealth family nurse practitioner.
The Ronald McDonald Care Mobile at Mercyhealth has provided $2.4 million in free care, served more than 10,000 children, and provided more than 3,600 immunizations since 2003, according to the release.
