Micah’s Backpack Update

Micah’s ended the year packing and delivering 15 bags to Bester and 34 bags to Eastern .  We are so thankful for the volunteers who were able to pack and deliver the bags during the many challenges that Covid brought to the schools this year.  When the schools began with zoom in the fall, we packed and delivered the bags to the WCPS Meal Machine sites and handed the bags out to the children.  When the schools began “in session” learning, we delivered the bags to both Eastern and Bester thus using the original model of taking the bags to the schools for the weekend meals.

We want to thank the following for their help this past year:

Zach Repp and the Boy Scouts of Troop 10,  Sue Fiedler, Chuck and Sharon Poland, Krista Repp, Rhonda Munson, Mike and Anne Mowen, Sharon Hoppes, Scarlett Michael, Abby Angles, Pastor David,  Carol Schofield,  Kevin and Nanette Dagliano, Arleen Shuster, Betsy Norgard, Tina Stowell, Jane Drawbaugh and her confirmation students,  Rodney Nearchos, Kay Melby, Jeff Reed and Carol Brashears.   The program would not have been able to function without their dedication to feeding the children.

Look for announcements this August as we begin the program in September as schools will be fully functioning in Stage 5 (all students in schools 5 days a week).  We anticipate we will be at full capacity with the numbers to pack and deliver.  If you would like to help with this ministry, please contact Carol Brashears at 301-992-5016.

Please keep the Micah’s families in your prayers.
