Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle TN - Food Drive
- 1 in 6 Tennesseans struggle with hunger
- 46 counties throughout Middle and West Tennessee are served by Second Harvest Food Bank
- 394,860 people in Middle TN do not know where their next meal is coming from
With these and more numbers in mind, and with a duty to serve the people around us, Micah has chosen to hold a continuous food drive for Second Harvest Food Bank. You can bring items to our office during regular office hours and before/after services.
Room in the Inn
Room in the Inn is a national program that provides food and shelter for the homeless in houses of worship throughout participating cities in the United States. For the past 10 yrs, Congregation Micah has been an active participant in the program.
On the third Sunday of the months inclusive of November through March we host 14 men. The guests are served dinner, sleep overnight and are provided a breakfast the following morning.
The program is a chance for families and individuals to participate in the myriad of tasks that are available including preparation of food, helping with setup and serving the evening meal, setting up the sleeping area, and last but not least, overnighting as hosts with our guests.
We will be hosting the following nights for the 2016/17 winter season:
- December 11, 2016
- January 8, 2017
- February 12, 2017
- March 12, 2017
To volunteer, please sign up online at micahriti.weebly.com or contact one of our committee members:
Unable to volunteer? We are always in need of cold weather mens clothing, tooth brushes, toothpaste, shampoo and soap. Bring the items into the Micah office and they will get to us for distribution.
A big Todah Rabah to everyone who helps out with this social action!
WE LOOK FORWARD TO WORKING WITH ALL OF YOU DURING THE 2016-17 SEASON!
