Blessings in a Bag

Blessings in a Bag is a ministry that is designed to feed needy Miamisburg school children over the weekends. In order to qualify, the children must be receiving free lunches at school. Miamisburg is now serving over 800 students from preschool through high school.

St. James and Parkview serve 5 of the 10 Miamisburg Schools: Mound, Medlar, Chance, Maddux-Lang Preschool and Miamisburg High. This school year, we have 272 participants from these schools.
