Milford Miami Ministry: Fill a Backpack for Local Kids

In 1996 a group of Milford area ministers decided there was a need for support of local families in times of financial hardship. After several months of research and planning, Milford Miami Ministry (MMM) was created, with the purpose of aiding neighbors with food and financial support in their time of need, acting as the hands and feet of Jesus Christ in the community.

Drop off filled backpacks for kids in need by July 30th, 2023! Backpack distribution will be held on August 12.

“We are beginning our collection of filled backpacks for kids in our community whose families don’t have the resources to be able to get them what they need for the beginning of School. Below is a full list of school supplies that need to be in the backpack.


Purchase a backpack and fill it with all the items on the list. Teachers prefer to stay with the name brands as “you get what you pay for”. The list has changed some from our previous years. 

If you would like to fill one, they can be dropped off at the MMM Pantry (in Milford Christian Church, 844 State Route 131) during our open hours. Tuesday/Thursday 9:00-noon; Wednesday 6:30-8:00; 2nd and 4th Saturday 9:00-11:00. Filled bags are due by July 30.

If you have any questions, please reach out to us. Your help in the past has been greatly appreciated!” -MMM

Donate Time at Milford Miami Ministry

The need for volunteer help in the pantry arises from time to time, though we are extremely fortunate to have long term volunteers to cover most shifts. We generally ask for a monthly time commitment to the ministry. Example being every third Thursday of each month.
