From the Sidelines
Another year has come and gone. As 2022 begins, Micah’s Backpack program looks back on another successful year in 2021.
Special thanks go to Pastor Michelle and the MCI Advisory Board for allowing Micah’s Backpack to dream big, make changes, and move forward.
To recap, the program served more than 275 students each week during the school year and 170 students during the summer program. Micah’s packed 9,539 backpacks, 57,234 meals, and 134,335 items of food. This was all accomplished through more than 1,200 hours of volunteer work.
The program exceeded the Cummings/Ivers Challenge of $5,000, totaling more than $10,000 for Micah’s Backpack infrastructure.
The program was joined by numerous new businesses and organizations in 2021, including four businesses now donating on a monthly basis.
With the public’s continued support, Micah’s Backpack looks forward to another successful year with hopes of assisting as many students as possible.
