Mercy Care Adopt-A-Family Thank you
Hi Mercy Care Adopt-A-Family Sponsors,
This past week has been incredible seeing so many OLA parishioners and friends come together to support Mercy Care and the families and individuals that they work with. Thanks to your extreme generosity, we were able to adopt 117 families, couples, and individuals.
Thank you also for those who volunteered throughout the week to receive and package gifts as well as those who were able to join yesterday for the Christmas Gift Distribution Event. It
truly was heartwarming to see these families receive these gifts. Please keep these individuals and families in your prayers this holiday season and beyond.
Please see the link below for pictures that Mercy Care's volunteer coordinator captured throughout the week during gift collection and distribution.
Many of you have commented over the last week about wanting to do more to help Mercy Care. I've included details about their next event below. Additionally, please be on the lookout in the OLA Bulletin for our next semi-annual meal kit build which will occur in March 2023. The Ministry would love your support. These meals continue to impact many of the individuals we have supported through Adopt A Family.
Merry Christmas to you and your families!! Thank you again for your kindness and generosity.
OLA's Mercy Care Ministry
