To our faithful friends at PVUMC,
Thank you for supporting our Phoenix event [FMSC’s MobilePack event on Saturday, July 30, 2016 at the Phoenix Convention Center] this year! I am thrilled to share the following results with you:
- 1,026,432 meals packed in His name
- 3,737 volunteers inspired by the experience
- $350,165 raised thru this event – enough to feed 4,377 kids for a year!!!
Because you packed and because you gave, you helped FMSC Turn Hunger into Hope for thousands of children! The meals from this event are already on their way to the children in El Salvador and Nicaragua pictured below and to so many others just like them. Please know what a blessing you are to FMSC and to these children. I look forward to seeing you again soon at our Mesa site where we will feed even more precious kids together!
Working together until all are fed,
Janine Skinner, Development Advisor

Feeding God’s Starving Children Hungry in Body and Spirit
“For nothing is impossible with God.” Luke 1:37
PVUMC was a Silver Sponsor at the downtown Phoenix MobilePack event. As a church, we donated $2,500 and 43 volunteers registered to pack. In just two hours, with many hands, we packed 138,456 meals which will feed 379 hungry children for a year. We prayed over the 641 boxes and turned hunger into hope.
FMSC announced on Wednesday, August 3, that hundreds of volunteers participated in the weekend event. Together, they were able to pack 1,026,432 meals, over and above their goal of one million meals. Amen!
The meals will be shipped to El Salvador, one of the poorest and most densely populated countries in Central America, as well as to Nicaragua, the second poorest country in the Western Hemisphere, according to FMSC’s Katie Koranda. Click here to see some photos and read more about the event.
