The Mercy House clothing ministry of Sharon Missionary Baptist Church began as a benevolence ministry shortly after Hurricane Katrina ravaged the New Orleans area. We noticed that a great many families and individuals were being displaced, temporarily and some even permanently, as a result of the storm. It was our desire to do what we could to minister to these families in their time of need. Since this time it has remained open for those in the community to receive clothing and other essential items that one may need for their home. This ministry is solely volunteer driven and it relies on the good will of others to help fill the hangers and stock the shelves. It is open to the public on Wednesday evenings from 5:30-7:00 pm.
