Backpack Bonanza Was a Great Success!
In August, 2015, Malachi’s received 220 filled backpacks from the organization For The Kid in All of Us. We have received both backpacks and toys at Christmas from them for several years. Many of our volunteers attended the For The Kid event this year to pack backpacks.
We received over 43 backpacks and many bags of school supplies from our friends and neighbors at Kingswood United Methodist Church in Dunwoody. A big ‘thank you’ goes to Amanda Hickey of Kingwood UMC for organizing, collecting, and delivering this load to us!
And last, but certainly not least, the generous folks of St. Patrick’s answered our call by contributing $750 plus to purchase more backpacks and school supplies! Wow! This money will allow us to get to a total of 300 backpacks distributed!
Distribution was Wednesday, July 27th, and again on Wednesday, August 3rd. Just think of all those kids who are going back to school feeling prepared for the year ahead. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Construction of New Walk-in Refrigerator and Store Room is Complete!
In May of 2015, Malachi’s received a generous grant from the Atlanta Community Food Bank with which we were able to install a new walk-in refrigerator and re-configure the store room. The construction is now complete and we are moving back into our space. We are very excited to be able to receive and distribute even more food to our clients! With this grant, Malachi’s plans to increase the food output by 10% each year through 2018.
