And Ribbon-Cutting Celebration
After a Covid postponement, Mercy Support Services held their official Grand Opening and Ribbon-Cutting Celebration on June 24th at the new office location and property at 515 College Drive. Over 200 county and state leaders, businesses, friends and family came out to celebrate the growth and vision that this property is bringing to a reality.
The fanfare included balloon creation décor by Babes on the Block and lovely catered hors d’hoeuvres by Karen’s Catering; along with a ribbon-cutting of the new facility conducted by the Clay County Chamber’s Executive Director, Wendell Chindra. A bronze plaque was installed on the front, in dedication to the Legacy In Action companies for their 1.125 million-dollar sponsorship of the property. The office building is now officially the “Legacy Building”!
The 5-acre property is designated to be the location of a new 65-unit apartment complex comprised of three buildings – including a Student Self-Sufficiency Program, expansion of the current Self-Sufficiency Program and workforce housing units for qualified residents. The three year, 12 million-dollar project will become a hub of partnering services to the Clay County community.
“The Mercy Village project is a necessary expansion to meet our entire community’s needs based on the projected growth for Clay County. We are elated that so many leaders and stakeholders understand and support our mission in, not just aiding, but transforming lives here in our own community. This is what it means to be the hands and feet of God”, says Executive Director, R. Patrick Hayle.
