In helping pack more than 1 million meals for starving children worldwide, students said, “We want to be involved and know we’re making a difference.”
More than 500 North Central College students, employees, alumni, friends and family members were among the 5,100 community volunteers who gathered on campus Feb. 20-21 for a common goal: to pack nutrient-rich meals as part of the Feed My Starving Children Feed the Need! MobilePack worldwide effort.
“We want to be involved and know we’re making a difference,” said students about why they volunteered. “We’re a service community and like to come together and serve others.” All total, 1,053,216 meals were packed, feeding 2,885 kids for an entire year.
