We are so grateful for a very generous donation to Micah’s Backpack. Because of this donation, we have the funds to get some items for the children that we have not been able to get recently because of the cost. We are looking for someone who would like to go to the grocery store once every 6 to 8 weeks to purchase items for the bags. Examples would be more costly snacks-pudding cups, cookies, Jell-O cups. If you would be interested in doing this, please see Jeff Reed or Carol Brashears. This is a great opportunity to help the children especially if you cannot commit to a regular schedule. You can shop on your schedule!
Here are some ways you may become involved in this ministry:
- Join a team that meets once a month to pack the bags. This takes approximately ½ hour of time and is usually done on a Sunday or Monday.
- Deliver the bags to the schools. This is a once a month commitment. This is done on a Wednesday or Thursday and can be anytime from early morning (7 am) to early evening (6pm) at Bester Elementary and 9 am to 4 pm at Eastern.
- Contribute financially to Micah’s so food may be purchased.
We could use any help. It is possible for you to even pair with another person to help out on an every other month basis.
