If you are looking for ways to help with the Haiti Relief programs, a good one in the Chicago area is Feed My Starving Children. My daughter Amber asked me to join her and her friends this Sunday to help pack food supplies that will be sent to Haiti.
Feed My Starving Children (FMSC) needs thousands more volunteers in the next six weeks for its food-packing site in Aurora IL. Daytime volunteers are needed most. They want volunteers to sign up in groups, ten people to a group. The group I will be joining is scheduled for this Sunday, January 24, 2:00 - 4:00 p.m.
Feed My Starving Children is a non-profit Christian organization committed to feeding the starving children of the world. They send food to 60 countries. For more information on this group visit www.fmsc.org
The point is we all feel the devastation of the Haiti earthquake, the utter helplessness and the urge to reach out to those in need. FMSC is simply one of many wonderful organizations that have raced to help the people of Haiti. My local church gathered close to a $1,000 last Sunday in a special offering. More money will come in the continuing weeks.
More than one million meals have reached Haiti, and through volunteer efforts more than three million meals will arrive in the days ahead. FMSC relies on local and national support to provide the food needed.
For information at your local area, visit the FMSC website. If you have a favorite charity helping the Haiti crisis, please share it with us.
Til next time ~
