“A WORK OF MERCY”
The mission of Mercy Ministries of the Low Country today is to help those most in need and provide solutions for some of the problems within the community.
Mercy Ministries of the LowCountry has its roots in the Sisters of Mercy charism. It began as a very small bread “bank” which distributed small amounts of food from the sister’s carport. Over time people began to drop off clothing and household items for the poor and, thus, was born the Hardeeville Thrift Store. The Store has been in existence since 1999 and the proceeds from sales help provide assistance to individuals and families in need.
Mercy Ministries of the LowCountry is supported by many wonderful volunteers from local churches and organizations in Beaufort and Jasper Counties in South Carolina. These volunteers are at the heart of Mercy Ministries. Private monetary donations help support the work of the organization.
A special group of volunteers, the 4M’s (Mercy Ministries Ma’ams and Misters) carry out a variety of activities from working in the Thrift Store to organizing clothing and food drives. Additionally they sponsor special events such as holiday parties for seniors and children. The 4M’s also organize fund raising events and trips which help defray expenses that Mercy Ministries of the LowCountry incur in carrying out their ministries.
