This Mercy Works Service Project is a collaborative effort with the Saint Vincent de Paul Society, which collects clothes throughout the year to benefit those in need. Volunteers are also needed to fold the donated clothes on the day of the collection.

The Mercy Works Service Projects are based upon existing Archdiocesan volunteer efforts and are intended to be reminders that we are called upon to serve our neighbor all year long. Each Mercy Works Service Project will take place in a different Vicariate of the Archdiocese. In July 2001, Cardinal Bevilacqua visited inmates at Graterford Prison. In May 2001, volunteers visited nursing homes in the Philadelphia North Vicariate. In April 2001, volunteers worked at three homeless shelters in the Philadelphia-South Vicariate. In February 2001, volunteers filled and delivered breakfast bags to homebound seniors in the Bucks County Vicariate.
