What is micah's backpack?


 "He has shown you.  Oh Man, what is good, and what does the Lord require of you?  To act justly, and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God."    Micah 6:8
 
Five years ago, it came to the attention of a Faith Alive member that the families of elementary students in the Palmerton Area School District K-6 who receive in school a free breakfast and lunch do not have enough food for the weekends.  This fact ignited members to ensure that each of the children of these families receive 2 breakfasts, 2 lunches, 2 dinners and 2 snacks for the weekend.  Volunteers pack backpacks on Saturday or Sunday and are delivered to the schools on Thursday.  This ministry now serves 24 students and is providing a total of over 18,000 food items!

In our narthex is a shopping cart.  In that cart you will find:
  • a complete shopping list;
  • a list of currently needed items;
  • monetary donation envelopes;
  • and a coupon basket.
A tour of our pantry is always welcome.
