J.C. Restoration Helps Pack Over 30,000 Feed My Starving Children Meals for Children in Haiti
March 11, 2016 – DKI, North America’s largest disaster restoration contracting organization, today announced one of its member companies, J.C. Restoration, Inc. (JCR) of Rolling Meadows, IL, helped package over 30,000 scientifically formulated meals for children in Haiti, through Feed My Starving Children (FMSC) on Monday, March 7, 2016.
Six of JCR’s employees volunteered about two hours of their time in the afternoon to meet up at the FMSC Schaumburg, IL facility. Together, with other community volunteers, they completed 141 boxes of meals, which is equivalent to 30,456 meals.
“FMSC is a wonderful organization dedicated to helping young children in less fortunate areas of the world get the food and nutrition they need. JCR is humbled to take part in this initiative and hopes that our volunteering helps in some small way,” said one of JCR’s volunteers, Candace Johnson, marketing director.
JCR will also be running a FMSC MobilePack event on June 3, 2016 at their campus at 3200 Squibb Avenue, Rolling Meadows, IL. The team at JCR, along with hundreds of community volunteers, will prepare 100,000 of these life-saving meals for malnourished children around the world.
To support this MobilePack donations may be made immediately to help cover meal costs or you may volunteer to package food at the event. Volunteer registration will be available six weeks prior to the event. To learn more, visit www.jcr24.com or www.fmsc.org/MobilePack.
