The Fellowes Human Resources Department Teams Up For Feed My Starving Children Charity

The Human Resources Department at Fellowes used their annual team outing as an opportunity for giving. Supporting Feed My Starving Children, the HR team got together to help pack 27,000 meals for children in Jamaica valued at approximately $6,000. In addition, a check for $500 was presented to FMSC on behalf of Fellowes GIVE and the HR team.

Feed My Starving Children offers volunteers a one-of-a-kind experience. They 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 our incredible partners working hard to reach the neediest children around the world.

Through volunteering at FMSC, participants get the chance to impact hundreds of kids in just two hours per packing shift.

Feed My Starving Children meals are produced by volunteers in Minnesota, Illinois, Arizona and all over the United States.
