Updates:

On Tuesday, August 30th, Mercy House held our Back to School Day in which the children from the Newark area received all the back to school supplies they needed to start the school year.  Due to the generosity of several parishes, we distributed backpacks, notebooks, crayons, pencils and more.  

 

On Friday, July 22nd, Mercy House held "Christmas in July" in which the children from the Newark area received toys and ice cream.  It was a wonderful opportunity for the community to come together on this special day.  Local news media PIX 11 was present and their video on the day can be seen here:
