Misericordia Heart of mercy Candy Days

Thanks to all students, staff, faculty and alumni who joined us on Friday, April 24 to collect funds for Misericordia Heart of Mercy's Candy Days. 

Misericordia currently supports 600 children and adults with mild to profound developmental disabilities from all racial, religious and socioeconomic backgrounds. Programs include residential placement and day-to-day support, employment opportunities, physical and speech therapy, social and recreational outings, health and fitness activities, and opportunities for spiritual growth.

This was the third consecutive year that STAT (Students Today, Alumni Tomorrow) have gathered to collect money for the exceptional residents of Misericordia. This year's group of almost 100 volunteers helped to raise $4,500 in just one day. 

We will be hosting again in 2016. We hope that you can join us next April!
