(KWWL) - The MercyOne Northeast Iowa Foundation received in-kind donations valuing at around $100,000 in many forms from community partners.

The growing amount of in-kind donations are anywhere from gifts, services or monetary.

MercyOne communities have raised more than $2500 from nearly 170 signs being purchased.

The MercyOne Northeast Iowa Vice President of Operations, Ryan Meyer, says it's a simple way for people to show they're a part of their community.

"We are so appreciative of our community going above, and beyond to help everybody out to make this stronger community going forward," Meyer said.

MercyOne foundations in Cedar Falls, Oelwein and Waterloo kicked off a yard sign fundraiser to support local health care workers.

The money from the yard sign sales goes to the COVID-19 Response Fund.

The fund helps supply personal protective equipment and other pandemic health needs.

"The community has simply been amazing - from donated food, drinks and PPE to cash donations, " said MercyOne Foundation Manager Joe Suma.

"A yard sign is another way you can help, as well as show support on your front lawn. We are hoping to see these signs in all communities we serve."

Orders continue throughout May.

So far, more than $2,400 has been raised.
