  • Feed My Starving Children – Libertyville, IL

    Feed My Starving Children

    This is for a great cause!! Please RSVP now and show your support with our club!! Members and Temporary Members of the Lake Michigan Sailing Club will be volunteering to help feed our starving children! Please RSVP as soon as possible…space is limited. We need to confirm our count ASAP! Bring your friends! Just RSVP and add the number of guests you are bringing. Volunteering at Feed My Starving Children is a great team-building experience for groups of all kinds! Enjoy working together to save lives and feed kids in a positive, energetic and team-focused environment. FMSC offers volunteers a one-of-a-kind experience. You’ll hand-pack rice, soy, dried vegetables and a nutritionally complete blend of vitamins and minerals into bags which are then sealed, boxed, placed on pallets and shipped to their incredible partners working hard to reach the neediest children around the world. Through volunteering at FMSC, you’ll get the chance to impact hundreds of kids in just two hours per packing shift. You’ll experience what it’s like to make a tangible difference today. Please see the following link for additional information: https://www.fmsc.org/ AFTER, for those that would like to, we will meet at a local pub for refreshment and reminisce! Place TBD. Note: Jewelry Compliance: To comply with FDA requirements and remove all opportunity for foreign objects to fall into our life-saving meals (which could cause choking, tooth breakage and more), FMSC volunteers must remove all jewelry and/or accessories before packing. • No jewelry is permitted in the packing room, labeling areas, Warehouse Crew area or when inspecting raw ingredients. • Prohibited jewelry includes earrings, watches, rings, necklaces, pins, brooches, etc. • Wedding bands are permitted. However, if your band has a stone, you will be required to wear a glove. • Facial piercings, gauges and new earrings that lock in the back are permitted (please inform a staff member). • Medical alert bracelets and necklaces may be worn. There are a limited number of lockers available for use at our permanent packing sites, with a personal pin code locking system. FMSC is not responsible for the safekeeping of any volunteer’s jewelry, so if you are concerned, it is best to leave it at home.
