Merry Christmas

The volunteers and Board of Directors of MCCM wish for you and your family a very Holy, Healthy and Happy Christmas.

As we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ may we remember the words of Jesus:

Matthew 25:37-40 New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)

37 Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when was it that we saw you hungry and gave you food, or thirsty and gave you something to drink? 38 And when was it that we saw you a stranger and welcomed you, or naked and gave you clothing? 39 And when was it that we saw you sick or in prison and visited you?’ 40 And the king will answer them, ‘Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.’

MCCM Food Bank Sets New One Day Record

The Tuesday before Thanksgiving historically is our busiest day of the year. This year was no different. We set a new single day record as shown in the following table:

Total Adults Served: 284
Total Children Served: 104
Total Families Served: 150
Total Boxes Served: 204
Total New Clients Added: 5

We would not have been able to meet this need without the efforts of a team of volunteers who came in on Monday, November 23 to fill boxes so that the Tuesday crew could focus on distributing the boxes. Thank you, thank you to both crews. This Tuesday before Thanksgiving was the smoothest such day we have ever had.

Hunger in Tennessee

In East Tennessee and especially here in Marion County there are a lot of families just like Gaby’s family in the video above. MCCM is able to assist the Gaby’s in Marion County because of YOU. We are partnered also with the local Second Harvest affiliate, the Chattanooga Food Bank (CAFB), which sends their Mobile Pantry to various schools in Marion. Please take 2 minutes to view Gaby’s story in the video below, and then please consider how you can help support MCCM’s Food Bank and Good Neighbors programs.

My husband Josh and I have three children. John is seven, Gavin is two and Marietta is one. When we first got married our lives were pretty stable. We had a place to live and both of us worked full time. We could pay the bills; we could buy our children the things they needed. But then I lost my job and things went downhill from there.

Josh lost his job the year after I did. We had just moved into a new home so the loss was especially tough. We did everything we could to find other work but apparently it just wasn’t enough. Today, we are down to our last dime. After the bills are paid, there is no money left. In fact, there is no money to pay the bills. We constantly have to make tough choices like choosing between buying diapers and paying the light bill. If it wasn’t for the food bank, we would definitely have to choose between paying for utilities and buying food.

We receive help from the food bank – Second Harvest of Northeast Tennessee – in two ways: through the mobile food bank that comes to our community monthly, and through the BackPack program at John’s school. Each Friday, he comes home with a bag full of healthy food that enables me to make quick, easy meals for all my children. Josh and I may have to skip meals, but we make sure our children never have to. Without help from the food bank though, I really don’t know how we’d feed them.

We never thought our lives would turn out like this – no one does. But when we did find ourselves in this situation we are so thankful the food bank is there to help. We won’t always struggle like this; I have hopes for a better future. In fact, Josh starts a new job this week and I’m planning on going to school to be a welder. We’ll work hard to get on our feet so we can give our children a better life. I want them to have the world and someday, the ability to give back.
