Making a Difference in Hyderabad, India
From June to December 2012, we stockpiled meals with the goal of sending half a 40 foot container of food to India. We partnered with the Bluffton based, Forgotten Children, who supplied clothing for the other half of the container and coordinated the shipment. We recently received some great feedback from our partner in Hyderabad, India. After spicing things up a bit to meet the cultural taste, the food has been well accepted by orphan homes and feeding programs for children living in the slums. A big THANK YOU to all of those who packed and funded meals during the last half of 2012; your time and financial sacrifice is being felt all the way around the world!!
Church Provides Much Needed Meals For Children in Uganda
Last summer, First Brethern Church in North Manchester held a packing event event to provide meals to a missionary they support in Kyenjojo, Uganda. We were able to coordinate shipment of 28,500 meals to God's Care Ministries who are making a difference in their area in the areas of schooling, medication, counseling, and hygiene education. Many meals have been distributed to families enrolled in their sponsorship program as well as to families with HIV positive, malnourished children. The need is great in Western Uganda, and this food is making a difference!
On March 7th, Kohl's employees from northern Indiana gathered for a regional meeting in Fort Wayne. In addition to improving their skills and networking, they took time out of their busy day to give of themselves as well. Kohl's uses a grant program to encourage their employees to volunteer in the community. The Kohl's members were highly competitive and full of energy as they packed over 10,000 meals in only an hour. Thank you to all who participated!
Would you like to engage your employees or co-workers in a fun and meaningful team-building time? Please contact us to learn how you can spearhead a packing event at your work and help feed our future.
