Filling Midland's Cup is an initiative to fight hunger in the Great Lakes Bay Region by providing food and necessities to those in need by following the example of Christ. (Matt. 25:40)
Filling Midland's Cup's mission is to care for those in need in the Great Lakes Bay Region by providing necessities like food and toiletries to families in need by following the example of Christ.
"Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me." Matthew 25:40
Final Mission Statement will be displayed soon!
Midland’s Cup is an extension of Journeys Coffee House, located on Main Street in Downtown Midland. Journeys main goal is to be known as the gathering place where everyone feels welcomed, accepted, and cared for.
Upon being presented with the alarming reality that many people in our own community cannot afford basic necessities such as toiletries or groceries, Journeys coordinated its first food drive, providing a week’s worth of groceries to over 100 families in the Midland community. The initiative has blossomed and has since hosted seven food giveaways (as of May 2012) and Family Fun Days and is currently preparing for additional events this summer, and a tri-city event hosted by the Great Lakes Loons in September. Journeys Coffee House is committed to building a better community and allocates 100% of its tips to Filling Midland’s Cup.
Family Fun Days:
Family Fun Days accompany each food drive, providing a variety of kids’ activities, entertainment, food and snacks, sustainability education programs, and more!
Partnering with Local Businesses and Organizations:
In September, Filling Midland’s Cup will be partnering with the Great Lakes Loons in providing a FAMILY FUN DAY and FOOD GIVEAWAY for families in the Midland, Saginaw, and Bay City areas.
