THE MERCY HOME: THANK YOU!
Thanks to all of those who volunteered to help out at the Mercy Home, domestic violence shelter, on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. All shifts are full and 2 people called to help and after all of the shifts were filled. Kudos to those who are volunteering and to those who called to help and the shifts were full.
I did go visit the Mercy Home on Friday to finalize our plans and train a new volunteer, and discovered that there will be about 4 women and about 7 kids at the shelter over the Christmas Holiday. One woman has 4 kids all under 4, and another woman has 2 kids, one of which is handicapped. I hope to make this Christmas a special and safe one for them.
The Mercy Home is in need of clothing for some of these kids and women. If you are able, please help out by donating the following items:
- Boys pants and shirts size 6/7: 10 sets are needed
- Boys pants and shirts size 4/5: 5 sets are needed
- 2 ladies hoodies size 2XL
- 1 ladies hoodie size XL
If you are volunteering you can bring them to your shift, or if you are not volunteering you can bring them to the YWCA, and tell them that they are for boys and women at the shelter.
Thanks to all that are helping.
