Feed my starving children project

Volunteer:
          If you want to make a difference and "be the change,"
Consider volunteering for worthwhile community service events.
Giving back & helping others is rewarding, fulfilling, satisfying, and fun!   Please join the Phoenix Philanthropists for this very fun and exciting family-friendly event at Feed My Starving Children. With great music playing, in a very energized environment, we will be creating meals, called "Manna Pack Rice," which are distributed throughout the world to restore the health of children in the most severe state of malnutrition. In just an hour and a half, filled with great fun, you will truly help make a life-saving difference!

A form should also be completed by any adult guests of members; and for each participating child under 18, by their parent or legal guardian.

CHECK-IN: When you arrive, please sign in at the FMSC computers by the entrance doors, then be sure to check in with the Phoenix Philanthropists, and get a name tag. (Note: Please return name tags at the end of the event, so we may reuse then.)

BRINGING A GUEST? If you have RSVP'd to bring a guest(s), please add their name(s) in a comment on this page. This way, we can make a name tag for them.

GROUP PHOTO/NAME TAG RETURN: At the end of the session, before leaving the packing room, and while still donning your beautiful hairnet, please join us for just a moment near the packing room exit doors for a Hairnet Heroes group photo, and to return the reusable name tags.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
