Our Church is holding a Feed My Starving Children event this Friday and Saturday. We participated last year and it was an absolutely amazing event. The event which will take place in our fellowship hall is made up of 1000 volunteers who will package over 200,000 meals for children who would otherwise have very little or nothing at all to eat.
Last year we had over 1000 volunteers, we raised over $50K to pay for supplies and we packaged over 200,000 meals. The entire process is amazing, from the large trailers that were delivered to our church, to the 10 stations that were set up, to the detailed instructions that were provided by the facilitators...everything went off without a hitch!
300+ kids from our School and many of their families participated last year along with many church members, there families and friends as well as members from surrounding churches and communities.
This year will be no different and the excitement is building as we get closer to our 6:00pm - 8:00pm shift tomorrow night. Tracy and I will be joined by my in-laws, Patty and Chuck, our daughter Sarah and her boyfriend Jake and our neighbors Lance and Mary. Of course we will have to go out for dinner at our favorite Chinese food restaurant prior to our scheduled shift to make sure that we have the strength to hit our team packing goal.
Hopefully I will be able to take some pictures from inside the event to share, but if it is anything like last year, we starting work from the minute we arrived and didn't stop until our two hours were up...boy did those two hours go by fast! More to follow...
