Volunteers Needed For “Feed My Starving Children”

Donations and hundreds of volunteers are being sought to help feed thousands of starving children in the developing world. Through a partnership between Warsaw Community MobilePack and Feed My Starving Children, volunteers will prepare 1 million life-saving meals at the FMSC MobilePack™ event Oct. 9-11 at Madison Elementary School. Scott Sterk and David Wayne are heading up the logistics of the event. Community members can support the MobilePack by making a donation to cover meal costs or by volunteering to package food at the event. Donations may be given immediately, and volunteer registration will begin Sept. 1. “Feed My Starving Children packed 165 million meals in 2013 and a lot of those are done at their permanent sites, but then they have what they call a MobilePack. They will come to your community and it’s the same idea, only they bring the materials to your location. We fundraise 22 cents a meal to pay for the materials. We’ll need 5,000 volunteers from the community to come together and each volunteer will work a two-hour shift,” Sterk explained. While 5,000 volunteers may seem like a lot of people, Sterk said, “We live in a generous community, I’m not too worried about that though.” To learn more, visit www.warsawmobilepack.com From there will be links for more information and to volunteer.
