“I can’t believe this is our 4th year, this is one of my favorite WithMerci events. I couldn’t imagine having to spend the holidays in the hospital, so if bringing Thanksgiving dinner brings a little bit of hope to these children, I am all for it. I started the WithMerci Foundation because I love working with children, and I’ve developed a passion to help families and underprivileged children with disabilities and special needs. This holiday season it is important that we remember that it is not the amount of time or money we give rather it is the outpouring of love portrayed in our giving. It warms my heart to know that through our efforts these children and their families will enjoy a special Thanksgiving meal that they may have not otherwise received,” said Mercilus.
Mercilus infinite heart for people and his community has always led him to give back thus the creation of the WithMerci Foundation. Since its inception the WithMerci Foundation has been a champion for advancing the cause for an underserved population, providing advocate services for families and children with disabilities. To date the WithMerci Foundation has donated nearly $500,000 to organizations supporting children with disabilities and special needs in the Greater Houston area.
Partnering with Texas Children’s Hospital aligns with the mission of the WithMerci Foundation whereas; they are a non-profit organization with the sole mission of creating a flourishing, unimpaired and healthier future for children and women throughout their local and global communities by championing patient care, education and research.
