Project Youth OCBF has also had the privilege of partnering with Hands of Mercy and its Director, Glen Whitaker for the past few years. Hands of Mercy generously provides food and grocery boxes to 20 Project Youth OCBF families in need on a monthly basis. This contribution of grocery needs has allowed numerous program families to receive much needed and timely assistance. Being able to offer free groceries to a mother who is struggling in this difficult economy has also allowed staff to develop a trust and rapport with the women they serve.
Mr. Whitaker was recognized by former Project Youth OCBF President Chris Wesierski (middle below, rightt) and Justice David Thompson (middle below, left) at Project Youth OCBF’s 2015 Annual Meeting & Society of Fellows Recognition Reception and presented with the Community Partner Award.
