Mercy Center Distributes 250+ Thanksgiving Baskets to Families in Need

Mercy Center’s Food Pantry distributed over 250 Thanksgiving baskets to social workers from the Division of Child Protection & Permanency, Monmouth County Department of Social Services, Asbury Park Board of Education Child Care, Interfaith Neighbors and our own Family Resource Center. Many generous local businesses, churches, and community groups donate all the food or provide donations in support of our annual drive. The operation is coordinated and managed by our Volunteer Coordinator, Dorothea Weller. Our many wonderful pantry and Sisters Academy volunteers devote many hours to the assembly and distribution of all the baskets. We are so grateful for all our donors and volunteers who made it possible for 250 families be able to enjoy a Thanksgiving meal.
