Renovation of the Thrift Store and expansion of the Food Pantry. The goal of the project was to give staff and volunteers a suitable space to operate programs and better serve those seeking assistance. Merritt Construction started by building out a room where volunteers could have a dedicated space to sort and organize thrift store donations. An indoor walkway was also created linking the sorting area directly to the thrift store so volunteers will no longer have to walk outside to get from one space to another. The hallway will be especially important during inclement weather and extreme heat to keep volunteers safe and operations running smoothly. The Food Pantry at House of Mercy, which serves 1,850 individuals and families each month was expanded to shelve more food donations and add a commercial freezer. New interior lighting, paint and an expansion of the breakroom/kitchen area made the project complete and ready to adequately serve more people.
