Micah’s Backpack Ministry

Dear Micah’s Backpack Volunteer,

I know I sound Like a broken record but thank you from the bottom of my heart for your dedication to the Micah’s’ Backpack program.  Collectively, we packed and delivered approximately 2, 720 bags this year. That translates into over $30,000 of food.  It works because of you!

We are still waiting the results of the survey from the schools.  I will share it with you when we begin in the fall.  Be assured that the need is great and we are making a difference. We even added a student at Eastern in June.  Even though there were only 2 weeks left in the school year, the child was added because they needed food.

You may have seen 2 articles in the paper this past spring:

  1. Micah’s is serving over 1000 children per week.  Trinity was mentioned for bringing the program to Washington County.  Thanks be to God for moving the hearts of so many churches to embrace this ministry.
  2. Citi Corp is sponsoring 2000 bags this summer to be handed out through the MEAL MACHINE. Many of our children will continue to get a bag of food each Friday because of their effort. Thanks be to God.

 

If you are willing to participate in this ministry by packing or delivering please call at the phone number or email address listed below.

Packing takes place on Sundays or during the week . Some teams pack between the two services on Sunday morning. Others teams pack on Monday afternoon around 4:30pm. Delivery takes place during the week. We ask that you deliver your bags on Wednesday of Thursday to the schools for the children to take home on Friday. We would love for you to help!

In Christ,
Carol  and Jeff

 

We are always looking for ways to improve the program. If you have suggestions, please call me at 301-992-5016 or brash115@aol.com   Thanks, Carol
