Profiles in Mercy: Thanksgiving Basket Volunteers

This year, Mercy Center’s Food Pantry will distribute 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. This is all coordinated by our Volunteer Coordinator, Dorothea Weller.

Dorothea pulls out all the stops from asking Hoffman’s Ice Cream to store the turkeys, the students of Sisters Academy to help assemble the food and the many volunteers who spend hours organizing and distributing the baskets. There are so many people who assist us in making this a turn-key operation. We cannot thank you enough.

Thanksgiving is a special time for all of Mercy Center because we are so grateful for what has been given to us and for what we are able to share. We are honored to profile all of our volunteers who are the heart and hands of Mercy Center.
