The Giving Spirit

The Mercury is once again raising money for its annual Operation Holiday effort. Each year The Mercury helps hundreds of families in the immediate area have a good holiday, giving them food for several meals and gift cards to buy Christmas presents for their children. If you would like to donate to Operation Holiday, send your check or money order made out to "Operation Holiday," to The Mercury, P.O. Box 484, Pottstown PA 19464.
