CHRISTUS Spohn Awards Mission of Mercy $75,000
Mission of Mercy received $75,000 in December 2018 during CHRISTUS Spohn's check presentation. CHRISTUS Spohn gave more than $260,000 to local nonprofits.

Mission of Mercy Executive Director Sherry Bowers said she was grateful for the gift. “We are thankful for their generous financial support. We are also grateful for CHRISTUS Spohn's in-kind support of $4.5 million in various laboratory testing and blood work for our patients. We would not be able to assist our patients without their help."
