Thank You for Your Support of the Feed My Starving Children MobilePack Event – April 7, 2018
The community wide MobilePack event was a grand success. 15 churches in Fond du Lac stood together in raising funds and packing food for the poor in faraway places. Thank you to all who participated either with your prayers, donations, or helping hands. God has shown His faithfulness through you. Thank you. Final numbers: 187,056 meals packed, (our goal was 186,624) by 940 volunteers (69 from the First Presbyterian Church). Those meals will feed 512 children for a whole year. We also surpassed our fundraising goal was $41,000. You heard God’s call and responded in an overwhelming way. We praise God for this. Thank you!
We are excited to share the news of where our meals have shipped! Please pass this information along to your crew and anyone else you think would be interested in knowing:
- 576 Boxes (124,416 meals) shipped to Belize, and 144 boxes (31,104 meals) shipped to Nicaragua, through our partner Food for the Poor. Food for the Poor links the church of the First World with the church of the Third World in a manner that helps both the materially poor and the poor in spirit. Food for the Poor has distributed FMSC meals through its extensive network of partner organizations in the Caribbean, Central America and South America.
- 146 boxes (31,536 meals) shipped to the Dominican Republic through Cross International. Cross International is a Christian ministry that serves the poorest of the poor internationally by channeling aid through existing churches or church-based ministries, cost-effectively helping the poor while advancing the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Cross International has distributed FMSC meals in Africa, Asia, the Caribbean, Central America and South America.
In total, FMSC shipped 866 boxes (187,056 meals) that were packed at the 2018 Fond du Lac MobilePack, which could potentially provide 512 kids a meal a day for an entire year! The meals packed at your event contributed to our ability to send three full shipping containers at this time—that is 1,260 boxes per container—for a total of 816,480 meals to be fed to the least of these, bringing hope and providing nourishment! A Tanzanian Proverb says, “Little by little, a little becomes a lot”…one scoop, one bag, one box, one pallet, one container, fills many bellies at a time… Thank you for your continued partnership with Feed My Starving Children; we simply can not do what we do without your love for our mission!
Watch for the 2019 MobilePack Event details coming soon!!
