WARRENVILLE, IL– On Sept. 23, six members of the Plymouth Tube Co. volunteered to pack food for the Feed My Starving Children organization. The event was put on by The Warrenville Charitable Giving Committee at their Aurora, IL location.
Volunteers were split into groups where they worked to assemble packages of dried vegetable, soy and rice into “Manna Packs.” These packs were then weighed, sealed and boxed for shipment. In total there were 70 volunteers who packed 104 boxes. These boxes contained a total of 22,000 meals. The FMSC organization distributes these boxes of packaged food to malnourished children and families from all around the world. The packs are used to operate orphanages, schools, clinics and feeding programs to break the cycle of poverty. This was the fourth time that Plymouth employees have participated in the event and they feel the opportunity has had a positive impact on the company as a whole.
“I think these events give us a unique chance to work together with co-workers from other departments while spending time helping so many in need,” said employee Stephanie Howard.
The volunteers from the Plymouth Tube Co. had a great time working together at the event and plan to continue on the charitable tradition for years to come. If you or someone you know would like to donate to FMSC please visit their website at http://www.fmsc.org.
