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 Gresham 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 (January’s event will be held on 1/10/18)
– 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 Becky Umphrey or Lisa Jesse.
