On May 5, 2015, The Mercy Community hosted a clothing drive through Hartsprings Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting and raising funds for Big Brothers Big Sisters agencies in Western and Central Massachusetts, as well as Nutmeg Big Brothers Big Sisters in Connecticut.

Under the leadership of Life Enrichment Committee President Mrs. Margaret Tedone, more than 25 boxes of new and gently used clothing were collected by residents of The McAuley, part of The Mercy Community, and neighbors.

Mrs. Maryellen Higgison of Steele Road chaired the event and is pictured above with Edgar, a representative of Hartsprings.
