Our Story

Jennifer and Michael Bender are married with four children (Kaitlyn, Bryant, Gabriel and Madeline) and the managers and driving force behind Footprints of Montgomery Inc. Jennifer moved to the area in 1999 with her two kids and a Bachelor Degree in Human Services and a minor in Psychology. Once here, she began volunteering at local churches as well as with a local food pantry. She met and married Michael in 2002 and together they raised a family. About four years ago, the food pantry that the two of them were currently volunteering at was planning on closing its doors and were looking for someone else to manage it; Jennifer and Michael volunteered to be just the people to run it and since that day, they have grown Footprints of Montgomery into the blossoming organization it is becoming.
