Mercy House News
Friday Night at the Movies
Rain wouldn't stop our family movie party! We moved inside to watch The Bee Movie and snack on hot dogs, chips, popcorn, lots of cookies and candy. We do it up right at Mercy House--Shannon brought bags and bags of cotton candy and the kids were more than delighted!!!! If you'd like to host a fun night, let us know...because we love to have fun!
It's not too late to donate new or gently used toys for our Mercy House Daycare. Donations can be collected and dropped off any time during our regular office hours from 9 am to 5 pm on weekdays. As always, thank you for your generosity! A special thanks to Target and Harrisonburg Crossings Walmart for their donation of gift cards for toys!!
Cleaning Closet Needs
We are often in need of certain toiletries or cleaning supplies for residents. This month, there is a need for: laundry detergent, dish soap, paper towels, diapers in sizes 4, 5, and 6, window cleaner, all purpose cleaner, new brooms, buckets, and mops. Thank you so much for helping us spread the word and building our supplies in our cleaning closet!
Monthly Meal Openings
Our monthly Mercy House resident and staff meal meets at The Church of the Incarnation (across from L & S Diner). On the third Thursday of each month, we fellowship together with a meal hosted by non-profits and churches. The September, October, and November meals currently do not have a host. If you'd like to host our meal (which is a fabulous way to meet and spend time with our families and staff), please contact the office. We can even help you create a menu!
