Thank you for feeding our military families

First, we would like to thank you for your generous donation. The help you have provided was used along with the local VFW and AmVets to feed service members a holiday meal.  We are excited to let you know that 100% of the funds we received has helped active duty service members and veterans from past and present wars that need a hot meal.

These brave men and women and their families do not have an easy time adjusting back to life in the states. We are seeing a number of issues like PTSD, depression, substance abuse, lack of affordable housing and homelessness, unemployment and many other issues that are causing even more stress in the lives of these soldiers and their families.  Being able to put food on a family's table is a simple and cost-effective program that has touched  the hearts of our military heroes.

Thank you very much for your ongoing support.

Mother's Day Heroes

This past Mother’s Day Mercy for Me recognized the following women as our 2012 Mercy for Me Military Mom Heroes:

  • Susan Jenkins
  • Rhonda Henson Trejo
  • Cecelia Voyce
  • Jacqui Savattere

Mercy for Me and our supporters are so grateful to all the men and women that volunteered to join the armed services and commit to defending our freedoms home and abroad. Every person in the military goes through much sacrifice on our behalf and we cannot say thank you enough. More and more, many of our military heroes are mothers and on this past Mother’s Day we recognized all of them. Our Military Mom Heroes received Mother’s Day meals thanks to your generous support.

Coming up -- Mercy for Me will be focusing on Labor Day celebrations and Thanksgiving celebrations.  If you know a military family in need of meals please tell us and please continue to spread the word that we have holiday meals available for them.

Thank you for your continued support through donations and spreading the word about Mercy for Me.

Mother's Day Heroes

Celebrating Military Moms on Mother's Day

Mercy for Me and our generous donors are grateful to all the men and women that volunteered to join the armed services and commit to defending our freedoms home and abroad. Every person in the military goes through much sacrifice on our behalf and we cannot say thank you enough.

Many of our military heroes are mothers and because of your generous donations on this Mother’s Day we want to recognize all of them and give 10 moms a Mother's Day meal for them and their family.

Starting April 15th, children of military moms will be posting stories why their mom is their hero. You can go to our facebook page http://www.facebook.com/mercyformecharity and vote on the stories you like. You can also submit your own story about your mom, if she served in the military. The mothers in 10 stories that receive the most Likes will receive a Mother's Day meal for them and their family.

The most Likes will be determined at 12am EST on Friday, May 11, 2012.  Gift certificate recipients will be announced on Facebook and GlobalGiving.

Thank you for your continued support!

A Special Thanks to St. Mary's Prep (Denville, NJ)

We'd like to say a special thank you to a special group of 4th graders in Ms. Portella's class at St. Mary's Prep that made a generous $799 donation toward this effort! I've attached a hand-written letter from the students that nearly brought us all to tears!

Thanks again!
