Overview

 
United Way of Greater Mercer County
Serving Mercer County for 81 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 27th for Mercer County’s largest meal packing event!  At our 3rd annual Strike Out Hunger you will help weigh, pack, seal and box 200,000 oatmeal servings. Last year, we had 600 volunteers pack 100,000 meals and this year we plan to DOUBLE that amount.
 
Sign up friends, family and coworkers to pack servings of oatmeal that will be provided to food banks across our region.
 
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!
