Mercy Ministries Backs The Pack!

The women of the University of Nevada basketball team have become close friends of Mercy Ministries. Head Coach, Jane Albright, is a longtime supporter and good friend of Mercy Ministries Founder and President, Nancy Alcorn. Last weekend, our Monroe residents spent time with the Wolf Pack when they travelled south to take on Louisiana Tech. The Monroe staff and residents got decked out in their “Mercy Backs the Pack” t-shirts and had a great time cheering on the team. It was a tough loss, but the girls really enjoyed hanging out with Nancy and getting to know Coach Albright and some of the players after the game. We are so grateful for these special Mercy supporters and thought you might enjoy seeing some pictures from the fun-filled evening.

This wasn’t the first time the University of Nevada Wolf Pack hung out with Mercy residents while on the road. Last November, Coach Albright and the team travelled to California for a big game and took the time to have a special dinner with our residents at the Sacramento home. Here are some photos from that special night:
