October 17-19 at WJU in Rocklin
ROCKLIN – At a time when unity for the greater good is of paramount importance, thousands of community members will fight world hunger through a partnership between the 10th Annual Placer MobilePack and nonprofit Feed My Starving Children, made possible in part by locally based Moseley Collins Law Firm, which is sponsoring 150,000 meals – the most ever for a local MobilePack.
About 3,500 volunteers are expected to pack more than 700,000 meals in just three days from Oct. 17-19 at the MobilePack, to be held at William Jessup University, 2121 University Avenue in Rocklin. Volunteers as young as 5 years old may participate to assemble scientifically designed food packs that help undernourished children return to health.
“Every day, the world loses so many children to starvation,” said Moseley Collins, a local pastor and attorney who is sponsoring 150,000 meals after sponsoring 100,000 meals for each of the last two years. “It is our responsibility to do all we can to alleviate the suffering. In partnership with Feed My Starving Children, we are giving local residents a chance to make a real difference in the fight against hunger.”
Community members can support this MobilePack by making a donation to cover meal costs or by volunteering to package food at the event. Each meal costs just 22 cents. The total event cost is more than $150,000 and the fundraising goal has not yet been met.
Volunteer registration and donations for the event are now open. Learn more at sacfmscmobilepack.org
“Moseley Collins has been a great partner with our MobilePack,” said Bill Halldin, Chair of the 10th Annual MobilePack. “Our success depends on sponsors who pay for the life-giving meals. Moseley’s decision to sponsor 150,000 meals this year and prompted our all-volunteer group to increase the number of meals we hope to pack to 700,000. Moseley’s commitment to vulnerable children is deeply appreciated and will empower us to help more children in need.”
