In December of 2021, the House of Mercy Food Pantry and Thrift Store was graciously donated three construction projects by HomeAid, in conjunction with Merritt Construction Services. These projects have allowed us to better serve the families who come to us in need of food and clothing as well as those who aid our mission by dropping off donations. These projects were finished on January 10, 2022.
The first and most important of these projects was expanding our food pantry space. The walls that created a hallway and two office spaces behind the food pantry were knocked down, effectively doubling our space for receiving, storing, and preparing food to be given out to local families in need. The second project is the establishment of a welcome area in our donation center, which allows us to process donations quicker and more efficiently as well as create a welcoming space for our donors. The third and final project was the establishment of a hallway between our thrift store and donation center, allowing for new items to be brought into the store more easily.
All proceeds from our thrift store go towards maintaining and operating our food pantry. House of Mercy currently serves 40+ local families per day. If you’re interested in a tour of our new space, donating, volunteering or have any other questions please contact Jessica Root or Ryan Walker at 703-659-1636.
We are incredibly grateful for the support from our volunteers, donors, and patrons during these construction projects and their help in allowing us to remain open while we made these changes. We look forward to showing you these new changes and to the positive impact they will have on our services to the community.
