The week of November 9 is a special time for our students to serve the community together. This year’s opportunities have a new look—not only due to the coronavirus, but also due to adjustments made at Miracle Hill.
Miracle Hill Children’s Home, for which BJA’s middle school students collected nonperishable food for over 30 years, has transitioned to a foster care community. A food pantry, the Miracle Hill Food Warehouse, serves these and all the Miracle Hill ministries as well as families in need.
- K3–5: Partnering with the Miracle Hill Food Warehouse to restock their shelves with non-perishable and canned food items.
- 6–8: Collecting supplies for the Miracle Hill Food Warehouse. The emphasis is on student participation rather than on quantity of items.
- 9–12: Students normally collect paper goods for Shepherd’s Gate, the Miracle Hill women’s shelter, often providing enough paper towels, tissues, and other paper products for nine months of operation. This year we won’t be asking students to go to stores for these goods—instead, students may donate cash to help Shepherd’s Gate purchase these supplies as needed.
