When help is needed, you can count on Mercerians to give their time to serve.

Several Mercerians joined over 40 volunteers on May 2 at Kingdom Life church in Macon to provide meals to those in need, said Dr. Ansley Booker, director of Diversity and Inclusion at Mercer University.

“Together we provided more than 1,000 people with much-needed meals,” said Dr. Booker, who was among the volunteers. “We served over 12,000 pounds of food.”

Kingdom Life was one of five sites for the Middle Georgia Community Wide Food Distribution, put on by the United Way of Central Georgia, Middle Georgia Community Food Bank and area churches.

Altogether, the effort provided 60,000 meals to families in need, Booker said.
