Memorial Health System Raises $68,519.69, A Personal Best, for Hunger Solutions Mid-Ohio Valley

Wednesday, April 26th, 2023

Memorial Health System is proud to announce that during this year’s Month of Giving supporting Hunger Solutions Mid-Ohio Valley (MOV), we have successfully raised $68,519.69 with the generous donations and fundraising efforts throughout the month of March. This total purchases over 18,000 boxes of food at our local food pantries, which equals to 648,000 meals!

“I am so proud of the Memorial Health System for always pulling together to support Hunger Solutions,” says DeeAnn Gehlauf, President of Hunger Solutions MOV and Memorial Health System Vice President, Business & Organization Development. “This year, we knocked it out of the park by surpassing our goal and surpassing what we raised last year. I want to thank all the employees who participated in the events we held during the month to raise these funds.”

Last year’s Month of Giving, held throughout the month of June, Memorial Health System beat our initial goal of raising $50,000, and instead raised a total of $54,164.24. We’re proud that this year, we have exceeded even our own expectations with a total of $68,519.69! We cannot thank our teams within the health system enough for their dedication and care to donate fun and unique baskets for raffle, baked goods, or even vacation days to contribute to the cause.

“Hunger Solutions is very important to raise money for food pantries and nutritional education to help many families in the community,” says Cindy Hall, Volunteer Services/Event Coordinator. “I am beyond thrilled of how much we raised this year for Hunger Solutions. It was amazing how excited and supportive the employees were when we had the different activities to raise money such as bake sales, a Whit’s frozen custard bar, a 50/50 raffle, and basket raffles. It was a win, win.”

Hunger Solutions was established in 2012 when Peoples Bank, Marietta Memorial Hospital, Marietta College, and the law firm of Bricker & Eckler partnered together to create a community-based collaborative plan to raise awareness and help eliminate hunger throughout the region. Hunger Solutions supports fighting hunger for all who are experiencing food scarcity in our area.
