Open Your Heart recently provided Merrick Community Services with funding toward a three-section glass door cooler. The impact of this funding will be long-lasting. Not only does the appliance have a long life (and can be repaired), but it continues to center the participants and their experience within Merrickā€™s food shelf. It also provides Food Shelf staff more storage to utilize, which is critical now in a time when they are serving more neighbors who are facing food insecurity.
Merrick Community Services supports individuals and families to navigate life transitions, find health and stability, and promote independence. Since their founding in 1908, they have served the East Side community in partnership with other agencies, businesses, and community residents.
Thank you, Merrick Community Services, for everything you do!
