At United Way of Greater Mercer County, we understand that good health is both a community responsibility and a community benefit. By partnering with community based organizations throughout Mercer County, we are working to create a more resilient community.
Strike Out Hunger is a multi-prong initiative that unites companies, individuals, and advocates to alleviate hunger in Mercer County.
