Merrick Community Services has supported individuals and families to navigate life transitions, find stability, and promote independence for 112 years. Merrick works to meet the needs of East Side residents with healthy food through our food shelves & Meals on Wheels delivery for seniors; employment coaching and career training for jobseekers; and crisis intervention and other supports for families struggling with housing, health, and other issues.
We will continue to grow stronger, together, even as we navigate this unpredictable landscape in a global pandemic. To ensure that Merrick stays strong and effective, we are launching the Nourishing our Neighbors campaign, focused on providing essential food and services to East Side families impacted by COVID-19. Donations to #GiveAtHomeMN will provide much needed support for our food shelves and Meals on Wheels programs which provide critical access to food for individuals and families who have lost their income or who are homebound and vulnerable to the virus.
As part of the Nourishing our Neighbors campaign, We invite you to watch the following virtual events.
