Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center (EIRMC) is celebrating their 30 year anniversary and to that end, they have launched a website with a historical look-back at www.eirmc30years.com. As part of their anniversary, they are giving back to the communities that have supported them by collecting 30,000 canned goods to donate to eleven food banks in their service area, including the Community Dinner Table in Blackfoot.
The following information comes from EIRMC and describes how the donation works.
1. Invite your work colleagues, friends and family to visit www.eirmc30years.com and virtually donate. Simply click on the donate button and EIRMC will buy the cans for you!
2. Share the news on social media, in your schools, churches, neighborhoods. We’d love for everyone to be involved!
3. Contribute to the cause! There is a grocery cart in the cafeteria and the main lobby; we’d so appreciate your donations of canned goods for people in need. Just remember, please no bagged, boxed, or glass containers—canned items only for hospital infection control reasons.
The collected food will be donated to the Community Food Basket, Idaho Falls Soup Kitchen, St. Vincent de Paul, Salvation Army, North Fremont Food Pantry, Jefferson County Food Bank, Cornerstone Pentecostal Food Bank, North Bingham County Community Food Bank, and Community Dinner Table (Blackfoot Community Pantry), Family Crisis Center, and Teton Valley Food Bank.
