Families Helping Families

Mercer families, we need your help!

As you may have read in a previous blog post, Mercer Juniors have teamed up with HomeFront, a local organization dedicated to breaking the cycle of poverty for area families. As part of this effort, rowers will have opportunities to volunteer hands-on with HomeFront and can contribute to donation efforts that help meet HomeFront’s clients’ changing needs.

Here’s where you come in. This month, we are collecting and donating personal care items. If each athlete could please bring at least one item from the list below by Friday, we could make a real difference for the families HomeFront serves:

  • Shampoo
  • Conditioner
  • Toothpaste
  • Toothbrushes
  • Face Wash
  • Towels
  • Q-Tips
  • Loofahs
  • Deodorant
  • Sunscreen
  • Body Wash

If you have any questions, please feel free to email our Outreach Coordinator, Zach Spitzer, at zspitzer@rowpnra.org.

Thank you for your generosity!
