Merritt Island Christian Church, or MiChurch, is on the Space Coast of sunny Florida in the heart of Merritt Island. Cheryl Cominsky, TCHP Community Outreach Coordinator, met with Elder Tony Derbyshire and his wife, Clare of MiChurch who expressed a strong desire to “adopt” MILA Elementary School in Merritt Island.
They presented the concept to their elders and congregation, collected donations, and purchased food for their first packing event at their church in November 2018. They are modeling their effort on TCHP – buying the food from TCHP, packing the food and delivering 40 food packets per week to MILA for the rest of the school year!
“A lovely congregation, wonderful group of people! They packed 560 food packages that night and that’s enough food for MILA through February,” said Cheryl.
