Fargo team members took on the challenge to help Feed My Starving Children meet their goal of packing 2.5 million meals for hungry children all around the world in just 3 days at the Scheels Arena in Fargo.
In addition to providing a donation to sponsor the entire event, GOLDMARK Property Management also sent 10 team members to aid in the physical assembly of packing meals.
Team members loved the time spent working as a community with dozens of other area organizations. The Scheels Arena was full of excitement, energy, and it was overall a warm-hearted and humbling experience. Team members even found themselves singing to the upbeat music and laughing with other volunteers.
WHAT IS FEED MY STARVING CHILDREN
Founding in Minnesota in 1987, Feed my Starving Children (FMSC) is a Christian nonprofit hunger relief organization working with volunteers to produce MannaPackTM Rice, a scientifically formulated food formula that is culturally acceptable worldwide. Organizations in nearly 70 countries around the world distribute these meals to children in greatest need.
By the Numbers
- Each volunteer will packed an average of 216 meals which feeds a starving child for 7 months!
- With hundreds of other volunteers, we packed over 1,080 boxes of food, feeding at least 630 children!
- As a company, we contributed financially and in volunteer hours to supply 69,260 meals!
- The entire event, with the help of the entire community, packed 2.52 million meals!!
Terry, a Community Office Manager, said, “I definitely look forward to helping at this event again next year!”
