One month into the new school year, the Micah’s Backpack program is serving 1,067 children with food for the weekends! Last school year ended with a record 1,057 children, and it took all year to get there; this year we’ve surpassed that in only 4 weeks. With 50 dedicated sponsoring churches and organizations serving a record number of children, we are truly blessed. However, there are hungry children already on waiting lists, with more need anticipated to come throughout the year as counselors identify children who are struggling without adequate food. We need help! If your house of worship or organization might consider sponsoring children through Micah’s Backpack, please contact Kathy Powderly at email@example.com / 301-842-4272 or Carol Brashears at firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
