Once again this year, Connie Cummings and Joe Ivers are issuing a challenge to all of us to support Micah’s Backpack not only with our time and energy, but also with our money.  They are offering to match up to $1,000 given to support the infrastructure of MBP.  These funds will go to pay for things like upkeep and gas for the Mobile Backpack bus, shelving for the food room, plastic bins to store food, and copying costs for the educational pieces we include each week in the bags.  We hope that you will join with the Cummings/Ivers family and help us turn $1000 into $2000 by the end of the year.  Feel free to use this link http://micahsbackpack.org/giving/ or mail a check with Cummings/Ivers Challenge in the memo line to 2308 Merrimac Rd Blacksburg VA 24060.
