(Cushing, Okla.) Organizers of the Feed My Starving Children (FMSC) Cushing MobilPack event are still in need of of volunteers. This is the second year for volunteers to come together and pack special meals to be shipped to starving children across the world. Last year 500 volunteers in Cushing donated two hours of their time to package 108,000 meals that were shipped to Haiti. This year’s goal is to have more volunteers to pack 140,000 meals. The event will be held January 21, 2016 at Cushing Upper Elementary (CUE), 316 N. Steel Ave in Cushing.
With the event less than two weeks away, many slots are still available. Randy Brown, one of the organizers for the event, says, “Without volunteers filling the needed work slots, this event cannot happen. Build a team from your family, friends, business, church, or community organization!”
The average volunteer packs 216 meals (one box) in a session. FMSC receives no government aid or donated ingredients.
The cost for these meals is about $50 a box, which is less than a quarter a meal.
Ninety-two percent of total donations received go directly to the feeding program.
FMSC is named one of the nation’s “Most Trustworthy Charities” by the Charity Review Council and is consistently rewarded the council’s highest grades available for accountability and transparency.
