Mercy Learning Center of Bridgeport provides basic literacy and life skills training to low income women, without regard for race, color or creed…and does an extraordinary job. Their clients are often in urgent need of food. The Y’s Women have been helping by bringing non-perishable food items to the first meeting of each month. It is then delivered to the Center for distribution. Please help — your contributions will be much appreciated. Any questions? Call Jean McGurk, 222-0501
