House of Mercy, located at 8170 Flannery Court in Manassas, operates a pantry stocked with donated food from local stores, churches, organizations and individuals.

MANASSAS, Va. – Home Instead will be collecting canned food through the end of June for local seniors in need, and their office will match the amount of food collected. Donations will be collected at 9817 Godwin Drive #202, Manassas, VA 20110. “At Home Instead Senior Care, we believe strongly that supporting our community should be a year-long effort,” states Owner Jacqueline St. Clair. “At this midpoint in the year, we feel that it is important to do our part to help those seniors in our community who face a daily struggle to find the resources they need.”

Home Instead’s summer food drive is part of the 2014 Home Instead Gives Back campaign, which marks a program of senior advocacy and community service aimed at assisting those seniors in our community who need it the most.
