Micah's Backpack

Micah's Backpack is a new ministry at Trinity - a program of Trinity Community Outreach - along with the more familiar activities such as our Food Pantry & Clothing Bank (now in its third decade of service to the community.)
During the school year, many students go home Friday to face the uncertainty of adequate food during the weekend.  In a cooperative effort with our two adopted elementary schools - Eastern & Bester - we are trying to make a difference.  Each Friday, as students leave for home, an unmarked backpack full of food goes home with the students participating in this program.  Our goal this coming school year is to provide 25 backpacks each week to children who are at risk and face certain hunger when not in school.
This project will be successful only if we can recruit enough caring volunteers to form a broad-based team.  Every effort is being made to allow volunteers (especially those who fill the backpacks with food) to work a flexible independent schedule.  If you are interested in volunteering please fill out the form by clicking here.
