Our Lady of Mercy Community Outreach will hold a free food and dental kit distribution on Saturday, March 6, between 9 am – 11 am at their Johns Island location at 1684 Brownswood Rd. Our Lady of Mercy Community Outreach is continuing to provide help to those needing emergency financial, employment and food services during these challenging times.
The Saturday distribution will be a contact-less, drive-thru model to keep staff and patrons safe. A Saturday was chosen to fill the gap of those community members who need assistance, but can’t receive it during business hours.
Food boxes and dental kits will be provided to individuals and families on a first-come, first-served basis.
Since the beginning of COVID-19 in March 2020, Our Lady of Mercy Community Outreach has:
- Packed and distributed over 66,850lbs of food at both locations for families in need
- handed out almost 19,101 bag lunches at the Neighborhood House Soup Kitchen location
- given over to $79,357 in financial assistance
The community can help make the food and dental distribution a success by:
Donating shelf-stable food and dental supplies to help families prepare for longer term impact. Donations can be brought to the Johns Island location at 1684 Brownswood Rd. between 9am and 11am Monday through Friday.

“Families and individuals are still struggling to cope with lost wages, eviction notices, utility disconnects and now navigating the virtual school environment. On our first Saturday distribution, more families and individuals came to get necessary staples than we had initially plan for, so we know that this is something that is needed, and will continue to come up with innovative ways to lend a helping hand,” says Ericka Plater, executive director of Our Lady of Mercy Community Outreach.
