Crystal D Gets Involved With Feed My Starving Children Organization
September 5, 2006
On August 11, 2006 Crystal D employees volunteered to help the non-profit organization “Feed My Starving Children,” a Minnesota-based organization committed to feeding starving children around the world.
At the end of 1-½ hours, Crystal D employees packaged 14,472 meals into 67 boxes. Enough food to feed 40 children for one year! The meals consist of rice, soy, vitamins and dehydrated vegetables. This was more than expected as the program volunteers set Crystal D’s goal at 30 boxes.
The aforementioned meals will be distributed to starving children in Zimbabwe.
“The advertisements on television are easy to ignore,” says Cathy Klein, manager of human resources and head of Crystal D’s Community Outreach Program. “The experience with FMSC put world wide starvation into perspective. Just one person really can make a difference, but there is power in numbers. I hope that Crystal D’s effort will inspire other companies to follow suit.”
Crystal D employees initiated the new Community Outreach Program in order to give something back to their communities. Crystal D employees have stated their appreciation for the outreach program and hope to follow suit with several community charities throughout the years.
“I feel very grateful to have been able to contribute time and energy to a good cause,” states Adam Oliver, Website Administrator. “I plan on going back to FMSC with my old business partners and extended family. Thanks to everyone who helped feed a child!”
