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. Jamilee Vail, Donations Coordinator, and her team at Kentucky Refugee Ministries, picked up the items from Mercy on Monday, October 4.
Becky Montague, president of Mercy Academy, expressed her immense pride when she saw the items being loaded into the vehicles. “Our Mercy community embraces every need with the spirit of helping others. We strive to live the mission of Mercy every day."
