Thank You from MBPMicah’s Backpack welcomes volunteers to pack and deliver backpacks on a weekly basis during the school year. Weekly packing takes place at St. Michael’s Lutheran Church, located at 2308 Merrimac Rd. in Blacksburg. Thursdays we pack bags from 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm. Individuals or groups/clubs (who create their own rotating schedule of 2 volunteers ) gather to fill 280 gifts for children and youth in our community. Fridays we deliver bags to 10 schools. Individuals may sign up to deliver bags between 9 am and noon to our partner schools.
