2020 Mercy Fund Grants Feed the Hungry in NW Indiana
For I was hungry, and you gave Me something to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave Me something to drink … The King will answer and say to them, ‘Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did it to one of these brothers of Mine, even the least of them, you did it to Me.’ (Matthew 25: 35,40)
In response to the current need brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic, all 2020 Mercy Fund grant monies will be awarded to support the immediate needs of the hungry within our Diocese of Gary.
The economic conditions have created immense needs to feed the hungry, as the numbers of hungry multiply and our local food pantries and meal services report huge increases in demand for services.
For the 2020 grant cycle, the committee will review all prior grant applicants and identify programs designed to feed the hungry. Following confirmation that the respective organizations are still engaging in programs to feed the hungry, each will be awarded a pro rata share of the 2020 Grant funds.
We are living in an unprecedented time. Together, with Christ by our side, we will overcome this crisis.
Mercy is strong. Mercy rises to all challenges. Mercy shall prevail.
