THERE ARE 4 GROUPS GOING TO THIS EVENT - PLEASE RSVP UNDER ONLY 1 GROUP SO I HAVE AN ACCURATE COUNT - THANK YOU!!
I'm posting 2 events during the summer months due to the increased need @ FMSC-Eagan. During the summertime it's a challenge to meet their normal commitments for supplying food to their partners around the world. Schools, shelters, etc count on the meals we pack here in Eagan & their needs don't decrease during the summer months. That's why we are needed even more!!
This is one of MY favorite activities - it's really fun!! This is such a wonderful charitable organization & it saves so many lives!! It's also easy to do!!
Note that Feed My Starving Children now requires that ALL jewelry (including bracelets, rings, necklaces and earrings) be taken off before entering the packing room (new FDA requirement). Small plastic bags are provided. I would recommend that you leave valuable jewelry at home. FYI-You will also be required to wear a hair net during the packing session.
Please sign up responsibly as we have made a commitment for a certain number of people for this FMSC shift. If your plans change, please change your RSVP to "NO" ASAP so that another person can take your place.
Suggestions for different places to have dinner before our packing session are very much appreciated! What's your favorite restaurant? We like to try new places within a few miles of FMSC-Eagan! If noone suggests a place, we can have dinner before @ Lone Oak Grill @ 3010 Eagandale Place, Eagan MN 55121 - it's right down the street from FMSC! They have HH specials from 3-6pm - we can meet there @ 5:45pm, if you want to get in on those! $3 & $6 food specials & drinks specials too!! See their website for more info! Last time we had a great time chatting until time to leave for FMSC!! You can come to dinner when you want to - I'll have a table reserved for us!! Please comment if you will be joining for dinner & when - I need accurate #s!! Thanks!!
Please meet me by the computers @ FMSC to check in before the packing session begins @ 8pm. We will try to sit as far back as possible! Thanks & I hope to see you there!!
IMPORTANT!! PLEASE DO NOT RSVP NO TO THIS EVENT - I REALLY DON'T NEED TO KNOW WHO WON'T BE ATTENDING! PLEASE RSVP YES IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO JOIN US OR BE ADDED TO THE WAITLIST - THAT CUTS DOWN ON THE # OF EMAILS I GET DAILY - THANKS A BUNCH!!
