Welcome to Merrick
Merrick in a Time of Change:
Adapting and Evolving
Today, Merrick Community Services stands as one of the oldest nonprofit agencies in Ramsey County, with a history of assisting individuals and families transition from poverty and become self-sufficient and stable. The core programs of MCS are Nutritional and Independence Services (comprised of the Food Shelves and MOW/Senior Services) and Employment, Family and Youth Services.
Merrick Community Services is celebrating the winter giving season with our Annual Holiday Share Toy Distribution Event on Saturday, December 16th, 2023.
Participant Registration has closed.
Please check back on this page as we will alert you here if we are able to add any additional participants.
WE STILL NEED VOLUNTEERS!
Thank you for your generous donations on Give to the Max Day!
Final numbers will be sent to us soon, but we made a great effort to get close to our goal of $10,000. With this support we are able to help make sure that the families that visit our food shelf will have a variety of nutritious items to choose from.
If you did not get a chance to donate on November 16th there is still an opportunity to do so by clicking on the link below.
Thank you again for making the East Side of Saint Paul Stronger!

We will continue to work with others in challenging and advocating for systems change. But, to be successful, we all need to be pulling in the same direction – to bend toward justice.
