FMSC Warsaw MobilePack is scheduled for Oct. 11-14 at the Tiger Recreational Activity Center (TRAC) at Warsaw Community High School.

This is the sixth FMSC event hosted by the Warsaw community. The Warsaw MobilePack steering team is in the final stages of planning and securing sponsorships and donors to pay for the ingredients that the community will pack. Lead sponsors include SYM Financial, Warsaw Community Schools, DePuy, Zimmer Biomet, Paragon Medical, Silveus Insurance; Kathy Hamman, Broker RE/MAX; First United Methodist Church, Wildman, Our House Real Estate, Miller Cattle Company and Jasmine Gabriel Schlitt Family Dentistry in addition to many other donors, according to a news release from Warsaw MobilePack.

The mission project will bring over 3,000 community volunteers together to fight world hunger as they pack over 700,000 meals to be shipped to FMSC partners around the world. The Warsaw MobilePack event will include a total of nine packing sessions. Each session will be two hours in length.

Over the four-day event, there will be five school packing sessions, which will include 1,400 WCS students. This is an opportunity for WCS students to live out their school mission of enriching the lives of others, both locally and globally, the release states. Public sessions will be Oct. 11 from 5 to 7 p.m; and Oct. 12 and Oct. 13, 6 to 8 p.m.

Registration for the community events will open Sept. 13 at http://warsawmobilepack.com. Event sponsors will be invited to a high-energy corporate challenge, which will be held Oct. 13 from 2 to 4 p.m. Official event sponsors will receive an early access sign-up link. This corporate session will be closed to the public.

Warsaw MobilePacks invite people to join in producing the meals. They need volunteers and donations to make this event possible, stated the release. Each person packs approximately $50 worth of ingredients in a two-hour session. Each meal costs 24 cents. Eighty-eight dollars feeds a child for a year.
