CHARLOTTE, NC – On Tuesday, July 13, sixteen middle-schoolers from Philadelphia Presbyterian Church in Mint Hill embarked on their second annual M3 (Middle School Mission Madness) Retreat. With a slogan of  “It’s who we are. It’s what we do,” their goal was to serve as much as they could for the entire day.

As part of a full day of service — from sun up to sun down — the group’s day began with cleaning projects at their own church, followed by baking and bagging 400 brownies which they later served to the homeless while volunteering during lunch at the Urban Ministry Center.

Their final stop was at Birthday Blessings, for an afternoon of projects that included making favor bags, candy necklaces, and filling Blessing Bags with blankets and care essentials for children just like them, who just happened to be homeless.

When their parents picked them up after a full day of working hard, the group was tired, but excited about what they had accomplished and the difference they had made in a hurting world.

This was the second annual M3 summer mission project at Birthday Blessings, and we were grateful once again for their smiling faces, helping hands, and caring hearts. To each one of you, thanks for making a difference!
