Micah's Backpack

D.I.A.-Micah's Backpack is starting out slow. We will begin our new project with 5 children. D.I.A.(Disciples In Action)-School Support has graciously provided 10 new backpacks. Each Friday afternoon 5 elementary school children will receive a backpack of healthy food and snacks to take home. On Monday the child returns the empty backpack to their school office to be restocked with food. Are you interested in sponsoring a child for $8.00/wk for 42 weeks ($336.00)? Several individuals can go together and sponsor one child. Or are you able to give a one-time monetary donation?

If you are or have any questions, please contact Vicki Reed at 301.790.1820 or Marcia Goodrich at 301.667.1473. Your financial donation is tax deductible. Food items can be dropped off in the Lower Tower Room. Just place them in the grocery cart labeled MICAH's BACKPACK. A list of food items follows.
