Scam claims to raise money for hospital

If they say they're raising money for Mary Bridge Children's Hospital and they're going door-to-door, then shut the door.

Mary Bridge spokeswoman Marce Edwards said in a news release Monday that South Sound residents should beware of fundraising scams that claim to benefit kids at Tacoma’s Mary Bridge.

The hospital “does not solicit donations door-to-door for our programs,” said Sara Long, vice president of philanthropy for MultiCare Health System, which oversees Mary Bridge.
