At Mercy Center, we believe everyone deserves a 4th of July BBQ spent celebrating with family and friends! That’s why we held a special holiday food distribution for our neighbors in need.
Each family received a cooler bag that was supplied by JCP&L, with hamburgers, hot dogs, rolls, and all the fixings for a 4th of July cookout provided by Mercy Center. Hygiene bags, courtesy of United Way, were also given out. The bags were filled with a variety of essential toiletries and feminine supplies that cannot be purchased with government assistance and are able to sustain a family of four for one month. Our pantry also provided fresh vegetables and fruits, dessert, and food staples.
“I like coming here, everyone is so nice and helpful. The produce and all the food is fresh. Most importantly, the people are very nice,” said Ann Reid of Neptune.
“It’s a very respectful place. Everyone is very helpful and friendly. The attempt is always great. They try hard here to give the best produce and it’s very organized. God’s blessing with the people here,” said Jeanette Redd of Neptune.
