Casper, WY November 9, 2017- Mercer Family Resource Center (Mercer FRC) has joined #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide. Mercer FRC will be collecting items to support the FREE community events they will be hosting throughout 2018 including Family Game Night and the Community Baby Shower. They will be collecting new, unused items including: Diapers-all sizes, travel size baby wipes, diaper cream, sanitizing bags, travel size hand sanitizer, teething toys, receiving blankets, burp cloths, travel size tissues, night lights, baby toiletries (soap, shampoo, lotion), family board games players and family card games for 2 or more players. You can also donate funds for these events by visiting www.mercercasper.com
. Donations can be dropped off at Mercer Family Resource Center 535 W. Yellowstone Hwy. between November 28th-January 1st. Occurring this year on November 28, on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, #GivingTuesday trends online to kick off the holiday giving season, inspire people to collaborate in improving their local communities, and to give back in impactful ways to the charities and causes they support. Mercer FRC and Natrona County Prevention Coalition work together to create stronger families and healthy youth by providing free events to the community. Family Game Night encourages families to spend weekly family time together, which can help youth do better in school and increase the chances they will not experiment with drugs and alcohol. Families who attend will be able to keep one free game for their family to play together throughout the year. The Community Baby Shower brings over 25 community agencies together to bring resources and needed baby items to hundreds of expecting parents and parents of children up to age 3. We work to provide needed tools and information while promoting healthy pregnancies and children.
