The Northwest team came together on March 8th and 9th to support the “From Hunger to Hope” initiative with Feed My Starving Children (FMSC)! Northwest packed over 3,000 meals, which will be provided to children across the world to help combat hunger.
Feed My Starving Children is a non-profit organization that works to ship meals to undernourished children with the help of volunteers and distribution partners. Their mission is “to reach everyone, until ALL are fed;” the organization has provided over 2 billion meals and counting.
“It was such an honor to get our Northwest teammates together with our Co-Presidents, Stephen and Stanford Phillips, to spend a few hours serving to make a difference,” said Kristen Milligan, Co-Director of the Good Deed Team. Each year, the Good Deed Team sets out to “bring simple, meaningful opportunities for our Northwest team to create a positive impact,” and we feel fortunate to work with many great organizations across Metro Atlanta who are inspiring change in our communities.
Over the course of the two days, the 336 volunteers successfully boxed over 200,000 meals, which will help to feed over 500 children 3 meals a day for the next year. To get involved with the FMSC or for more information, please visit their website.
