Join The Pack is Food For The Poor’s community meal packing event. During the event, 500 caring volunteers will pack 100,000 specially formulated meals for starving children.
Nearly half of all child deaths under the age of five are caused by malnutrition. In partnership with Feed My Starving Children, this hands-on event will help provide 100,000 lifesaving meals to feed starving children in Haiti. Hurricane Matthew has ravaged Haiti and the country is now bracing for food shortages. Now, more than ever, your help is urgently needed to help us purchase, ship and deliver lifesaving meals. Our goal is to also raise enough funds to send 3 million meals to families in Caribbean and Latin American countries served by Food For The Poor.
HERE IS HOW YOU CAN JOIN THE PACK:
Select your preferred shift and sign up today. Join or create a fundraising team and help raise funds to purchase the provided dehydrated foods for the meal packs.
Each Join The Pack team consists of 10 volunteers committed to meeting a required cumulative team goal of $500. With 10 people raising $50 each, your team will meet its goal before you know it! We encourage business employees, community clubs, students, churches, youth groups and families to form Join The Pack teams. The minimum age to participate is 6 years old.
We will have incentives and acknowledgments for top fundraisers, so have some fun with your fundraising. Your donation is what makes it possible to provide these lifesaving meals!
Click here to create your team (you will first be asked to create your individual page and can then proceed to joining an existing team or starting your own).
Join us on April 28 and 29 for an energetic food packing event and see the fruit of your fundraising efforts. There will be great music, lots of fun and a worthwhile volunteer experience!
Community Service Hours Opportunities
Volunteers will earn three or more community service hours for both their time packing food at the event and their time spent fundraising.
