On September 15, Marion resident Tabitha Tripp participated in a sky-diving fundraiser to help support Mercy Meals & More, a New Bedford kitchen that serves free breakfast for the disadvantaged. In recent months, demand for the free breakfast has dramatically increased, requiring the kitchen to purchase more food.
“The day was beautiful! Clear skies and sun!” Tripp said, via email.
Tripp, who jumped with several members of her Fairhaven church, helped raise $4,331.66, which will go to help fund Mercy Meals as the holiday season approaches.
