2020 Bowl-A-Thon | Canceled

June 2, 2020

We know that Merrick’s Bowl-A-Thon (BAT) is one of the events that clients and their families look forward to the most each year. While it was a difficult decision, the committee decided to cancel the postponed 2020 BAT. We will be contacting registered bowlers to determine if we can preregister them for the 2021 BAT. Thank you for your understanding and support of Merrick, especially during this unpredictable time.

We are grateful to our presenting sponsor, IPS CRANES for their dedication to Merrick and to the annual BAT. We look forward to working with this outstanding company next spring to host our 2021 BAT (date TBD).


Merrick, Inc., is in Search of a Forklift.

June 1, 2020

As a non-profit organization, Merrick, Inc., uses contributions and revenue from our business operations to provide important life enrichment and employment supports for adults with intellectual or developmental disabilities.

A crucial part of our business plan is to provide logistical support for business partners and our copy paper sales division. This requires some heavy equipment, including forklifts. Merrick has three forklifts, and at this point, two of the forklifts are inoperable and beyond repair.

I am reaching out to you, a fellow business leader to ask for your help in identifying a reliable source where we could obtain a used forklift (donated or at a reduced price). Do you have a forklift that you will be replacing soon? Do you know a business owner you could refer us to?

If you think you could help us, please contact Merrick Operations Director, Pat Hanson at path@merrickinc.org or 651-789-6222.

Thanks for any leads you can provide!
