A great opportunity for local volunteering is coming up at our church this summer.
On June 5-6, we are hosting a Mobile Packing Day at the church where we will be packing 100,000 meals for children all over the world in a day and a half. We need at least 500 volunteers to be able to do it!
The meals are packets engineered specifically for malnourished children, and only cost 17 cents per meal. They contain rice, soy protein, dehydrated vegetables, and vitamin-fortified chicken flavoring. I have tasted the mixture once it’s cooked up, it tastes a lot like Rice-A-Roni.
For more information about the organization that we are teaming with for this, go to www.fmsc.org. All of their meals are packed by volunteers.
Volunteers will work in manageable, two-hour shifts, with one shift on Friday from 6-8, and 6 shifts on Saturday, every two hours from 8am-8pm. If we fill up, more shifts may be added earlier Friday.
Kids and youth are more than welcome. Donations are also welcome, as we will be covering the cost of the meals ($17,000), but are not required.
If you would like to sign up to come pack meals with us, send a donation, or receive more information, email me (Abbey) at email@example.com. Let me know your name, the best way to contact you (either email address or phone number), and which shift you would like to work.
