Overview

UNITED WAY OF GREATER MERCER COUNTY
Serving Mercer County for 82 years strong. Today, the world needs United Way more than ever.  We empower the community to take a leading role in helping achieve personal and family self-sufficiency. You, along with the United Way of Greater Mercer County, can help alleviate childhood hunger in Mercer County. Through our partner Mercer Street Friends Food Bank, packaged meals will be distributed to food pantries across Mercer County.
 
HUNGER IN MERCER COUNTY
There are 12,300+ food insecure children in Mercer County alone (Feeding America, 2014). Our goal is to alleviate childhood hunger in the greater Mercer County area through a food packing event. 
 
How It Works and How You Can Help
We need YOU to join us on June 5th for Mercer County’s largest meal packing event!  
 
Sign up friends, family and coworkers to pack servings of meals that will be provided to food pantries in our community.
 
Many families and individuals use this as a time to give back to the community while meeting new people. Businesses choose to use this event as a team building exercise for employees while doing something great for the community in which they work!
