From Hagerstown to Kentucky, a food/clothing drive is helping those in need


Items collected at a food and clothing drive here in Hagerstown are going to be making their way to the Appalachian region of Kentucky.

Items can be dropped off at Spot Laundromats on Salem Avenue.

“Churches in Missions” goal is to fill a school bus for the people in the Appalachian region of Kentucky.

Churches in Missions organizes and facilitates mission teams worldwide and hosts pastor care ceremonies with footprints in 16 countries and counting

Last year, they exceeded the goal and are looking to do the same this year. 

The clothes need to be folded and neatly packed and food items should be non-perishable and placed into a plastic crate. 

John and Melissa Miller are missionaries with Churches in Missions and organized this with Spot Laundromat. 

“If it was you or I and we had a need, it would be awesome if people would get on a school bus and drive seven or eight hours to take some things to them that they need,” said Melissa Miller. 

“The school bus is actually going to be filled with people that are going with us because we are also providing a vacation bible school. We are going to do some construction and put some TLC on homes and buildings. People are on the bus, but a big ol’ uhaul is going to be following us crammed packed with food and clothing,” John Miller added. 

Items are being collected until August 5. 

Anyone with any questions can contact John Miller at 240-527-3470.
