Assemble Care Packages for Clients
MIFA keeps a small inventory of care packages for the families who come to Emergency Services for assistance. We also collect senior care packages to deliver to our Meals on Wheels clients on their birthdays and on Christmas Day. If you would like to host a collection project at your workplace or church, or just put together a bag or two, we would be grateful for your contribution!
Please direct any questions to the appropriate staff member below:
- Individuals and groups, contact Ethel Taylor at (901) 529-4505 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Corporations, contact Genevieve Hill-Thomas at (901) 529-4571 or email@example.com.
- Congregations, contact Linda Marks at (901) 529-4560 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please assemble items in a tote, an 11” x 14” decorative paper bag, or backpack for portability, and deliver to MIFA Monday through Friday between 8:30 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. The receptionist will accept your donation and provide a gift receipt.
Note: While all items are not required, we request that each gift bag contain at least eight of the items on the list.
