Every month, PVUMC offers an opportunity to pack meals for starving children around the world at the Feed My Starving Children Mesa warehouse, located at:
Mesa Fiesta Building
1345 South Alma School Road
Mesa, AZ 85210
Join us in 2017 on the following Saturdays: January 14, March 18, April 22, May 20, June 17, July 15, August 12 and September 9, 4:30-6:30pm. More dates will be added to round out the year later in 2017.
Register to participate in any or all of the packing events by emailing Jim Bateman, email@example.com. Include your name, a contact phone number, the number of participants, and the names and emails of those over 18.
Feed My Starving Children asks for a donation at the event, but there is no fee or obligation other than to serve. Donate as the spirit moves you. Each meal costs 22 cents to produce, and several hundred are packed during the two-hour packing session. Many participants donate $50 based on the number of meals packed.
Unique gifts are available at the FMSC Marketplace. Watch this video below to see one man’s story about how making and selling wreaths has helped him feed his family and keep his children in school.
