Mercy continues to respond to the needs of the communities it serves, whether it’s providing needed funds to stock food pantries, purchasing dental supplies and equipment, supplying flu vaccines or offering counseling for those in crisis.
This year, 28 social service agencies across six states will receive grants as part of the Mercy Caritas and Catherine McAuley Area of Greatest Need grant programs.
