THESE SPECIAL EVENTS ARE NEAR AND DEAR TO OUR HEARTS.
THESE EVENTS ARE NEAR & DEAR TO OUR HEARTS.
In March, Malachi’s participates in an event called the Hunger Walk. This is Malachi’s biggest fundraiser of the year. Funds raised for the Hunger Walk benefit the Atlanta Community Food Bank, the food clearinghouse in Atlanta dedicated to distributing food to hungry people. We receive our staple goods from the ACFB, which serve as the backbone of our weekly distribution. Malachi’s forms a team of church members and volunteers who walk together with 15,000 people, all of whom share the desire to end food scarcity.
MSH TOY PARTY
We collect and distribute over 500 toys at Christmas every year to our clients and their children. Throughout December, our toy partners reach out to their communities on behalf of Malachi’s to collect new, unwrapped toys. On the day of the Toy Party at Malachi’s, we invite our clients to shop for toys. We offer gift wrapping, hosted by our volunteers, to ensure a surprise for each child on Christmas morning.
Every summer, Malachi’s reaches out to our backpack partners to collect new school supplies and backpacks that we assemble and distribute to our client’s children before the start of school in August. We strive to provide 250 filled backpacks every year. The children love picking out their own backpacks filled with everything they need to start school. This event is almost as fun as the Toy Party at Christmas!
