Backpack Blessings Ministry

MCUMC’s Backpack Blessings ministry has partnered with Gresham and Glen Iris elementary schools to provide weekend sustenance for food insecure children. On the first Wednesday of each month at 5:00 pm during the school year, MCUMC will be preparing bags of food for each qualifying child. Then, every Friday, teachers at the schools discretely place the bags with a weekend’s worth of food in the backpacks of the kids in need.
We welcome your participation in this ministry by:
– praying for the ministry and the children impacted
– packing the bags on the first Wednesday night of the month
– serving as one of our drivers on the pick up or delivery team
– sponsoring a child for one year for $200, or donating any amount you wish to share
If you have questions or want to volunteer as a driver, please contact the church office.
