Jackson Community Members are Encouraged to Help Assemble Food Packages for Starving Children
JACKSON, Tenn. - The Jackson community has the opportunity to make a difference in a child’s life through the Feed My Starving Children packaging event.
Feed My Starving Children is a charity that helps feed children all over the world.
The charity helps provide food to be grown and made into easily assembled packages.
These packages are then shipped to parts of the world where food is scarce.
“What makes this such a cool event is they do these meal packing events all over the country, and this is literally the only one in the state of Tennessee.”
Skyline Church of Christ lead minister, Eric Petty, is welcoming the community to help assemble 400,000 food packages.
The food packaging event will be at the Jackson Christian School Wednesday and Thursday, March eighth and ninth.
Petty reports these food packages will be distributed to children in countries such as Ukraine and Turkey.
“For us to be having this here, to me it’s a huge honor. I'm honored to be able to help coordinate this, and I’m honored that they would pick Jackson, Tennessee to come do a mobile pack.”
To volunteer, you can sign up individually or with others.
Ten people make a team, and 32 teams are needed.
You can sign up for a two-hour shift, but Petty believes volunteers do not have to limit themselves to two hours.
