Mercy students, faculty and community members collected household items over the course of two weeks to donate to Kentucky Refugee Ministries.

By the end of two weeks, Mercy Academy filled an entire minivan and a large SUV with household items like toiletries, cleaning supplies and dishes, and transported two dressers, two nightstands, multiple end tables and a six-seat dining table and chairs to help furnish the evacuees’ homes.
