Michigan Harvest Gathering


Give back to your community this season!

In affiliation with the Michigan Hospital Association, Garden City Hospital is proud to be participating in this year's Michigan Harvest Gathering (MHG). MHG is a one-of-a-kind emergency food program benefiting hungry Michigan families through the Food Bank Council of Michigan (FBCM) member food banks along with 3,000 community pantries, shelters, and soup kitchens. Through food and fund donations, Michigan organizations have provided 81 million meals.

Monetary Donations
November 1 - 30

Monetary donations often yield more emergency meals than contributions of actual food. Every dollar donated helps secure five meals.

To make a monetary donation:

Visit www.FeedMichigan.org and follow the online instructions. Make sure to select "Garden City Hospital" from the drop-down menu for the "hospital employee giving campaign."

All monetary donations on behalf of GCH will benefit the Garden City H.O.M.E. food pantry.
