SALEM, Va. — A local business is using social media to raise money for Carilion's Children's Hospital.

Salem Printing Company has pledged to donate $1 for every 'like' they get on their Facebook page.

Manager John Mitchell says it's a way to help and get others involved.

The contest runs until December 20.

"Could be a lot of money but it's worth it," says manager John Mitchell, "It's something we've committed to. We do a lot, we believe in the community. Most of the things we do is for servicing the community."

The Salem Printing Company is also making 500 coloring books for the Children's Hospital. The drawings were submitted by local students.

Carilion Clinic's Children's Hospital uses donations all year long to help young patients. A spokesperson says they help as many as 200 kids every month.
