Volunteers from around the community are being sought to help package over 100,000 meals as part of a Falcon H.O.P.E (Helping Other People Eat) MobilePack event in Aplington this summer.

The Falcon H.O.P.E MobilePack is part of the Feed My Starving Children (FMSC) mission - a non-profit organization that provides meals for malnourished children around the world. This is done with the help of partners around the country, who purchase supplies and gather volunteers to package the meals, which are then sent off to feed children around the globe.

Spearheaded by a group of six different churches from the area, the packing event will be held at Bethel Reformed Church in Aplington in early August - but volunteers are needed immediately to help with planning and fundraising for the massive undertaking.

“This isn’t just a Bethel Reformed event, or even just a church event; this is a community event and everyone is encouraged to come help,” said Jackie Klahsen, Bethel Reformed Administrative Assistant. “This is a great way for people of all ages to help others and give back, and it’s also a great way to bring the people from all across the community together.”
