Merkel, TEXAS -

A well known outreach organization has expanded to Merkel.

Love and Care Ministries opened a center in Merkel on North 3rd street.

The Abilene organization provides food, clothing, medical care, and much more to the homeless and otherĀ  people in need.

Pastor Mark Hewitt says the need is evident in the Merkel-area. "It is a great opportunity for us to come in and minister to a new community , we are here to help Merkel as much as we can, as God allows us to," Hewitt said.

The christian charity will be open in Merkel on Mondays and Thursdays from 10 in the morning till 4 in the afternoon.
