Corporate Spotlight: Prairie Meadows Gives Back to Mercy

Mercy recently received grant awards totaling $20,000 from Prairie Meadows. The funds will be used to enhance mental health services at House of Mercy, purchase simulation training equipment at Mercy College of Health Sciences and launch a mobile Teddy Bear Clinic through Mercy Children’s Hospital and Clinics.

“At Prairie Meadows, we are dedicated to transforming the lives of those living in Central Iowa. We are proud and excited to support these and many other projects in our community,” said Julie Stewart, Prairie Meadows’ Director of Community Relations.

With these most recent grant awards, Prairie Meadows has cumulatively given over $500,000 to Mercy, making the organization eligible for induction into Mercy Foundation’s Gilead Circle. The Gilead Circle is formal recognition of some of our most generous Mercy donors whose giving has provided the vision, leadership and resources that allow us to serve those in need.

 

Prairie Meadows began operations as a nonprofit organization in 1989, with the goal of promoting economic development, jobs, agriculture, and tourism in the state of Iowa. Through taxes, grants, and charitable donations, Prairie Meadows has given more than $1.7 billion to the state of Iowa. Prairie Meadows offers more than 1,700 slot machines, table games, live and simulcast racing, hotel accommodations, entertainment, and more.
