• Gentle Shepherd Church, partnering with the N.O.W. Project, is holding a free food distribution with approximately 200 boxes available on the following Saturdays: Jan. 30, Feb. 6, Feb. 13, Feb. 20 and Feb. 27.

Gentle Shepherd Church is located at 3480 Shenango Valley Freeway, Hermitage.


• A major fundraising event for the Humane Society of Mercer County had to be canceled during the pandemic. This created a big loss of assistance to the organization as they run solely on donations, fundraisers and volunteers. This winter, there will be a basket raffle fundraiser on March 20. Due to COVID restrictions, this event will be held online. The society is looking for any type of donation for this event; no donation is too small. The money raised helps support the Humane Society in continually taking in, providing veterinary care and adopting out abused and neglected animals.
