Don’t forget our special annual Donation Drive

This time last year Mixx put together a donation drive for mothers in need. Starting today through December 22nd, Mixx is again accepting in-studio donations of supplies (listed below) for the women of Mercy House.

WHAT IS MERCY HOUSE?

Mercy House provides housing and supportive services to individuals and families who are dealing with housing insecurity or homelessness with the goal of ending this devastating cycle.

LAST YEAR’S SUCCESS

Thanks to you, our Mixx Family, we grossed $248 in monetary donations, with an average donation of $44.

Overall, we had ~1,380 items donated including items bought with the monetary donations.

Now, we invite you again to make another big difference in the lives of these women.

WHY GET INVOLVED?

Former Mixx instructor Tess, and I, have personally worked with the women of Regina House – a separate Mercy House facility for women and their children – to teach them stress-management through yoga.

They are such beautiful, strong people in need of our support.

Please join us in this drive by donating any new, unopened supplies from the list below. Just drop them off at Mixx Studio and we’ll take it from there!
