Listen to Abigail Mercado and Pastor Bruce Heydt talk about Susquehanna Valley Pregnancy Service’s Millerville Clinic on WJTL:
Mercy Unleashed is the Millersville Community Church half of our partnership with Susquehanna Valley Pregnancy Services to provide support to women—primarily from the Millersville University Community—who are facing unplanned pregnancies. Through our bank of essential supplies such as diapers, wipes, formula, food, clothing, and strollers, we aim to ease the financial burden of caring for an unexpected child. SVPS also provides counseling at our First Campus location.
Contact: Bruce Heydt
Volunteer positions: Volunteers are needed to staff the baby boutique, as well as to sort donations.
Additional training with SVPS equips volunteers who wish to serve as counselors.
Training: Clients must go through counseling in order to qualify to receive supplies. A brief training session is required to introduce volunteers to the requirements.
Time Commitment: Minimal. Volunteers who want to help restock the boutique may set their own schedule. When clients qualify to receive supplies, they will make an appointment to visit the boutique, and a volunteer will be assigned to meet them.
Equipment Required: None.
