What to do on New Year's Eve: Join with family and friends to fight child hunger

There are plenty of things to do on New Year’s Eve, but perhaps none more rewarding than joining with friends and family to pack meals for starving kids at Feed My Starving Children (FMSC) at 742 E. Park Ave in Libertyville.

Special “Fully Invested” sessions are being offered from 7-9 pm and 10 p.m. to midnight in Libertyville and also at packing sites in Aurora and Schaumburg. For these “Fully Invested” sessions FMSC requires each packer to bring $50 to cover the cost of the meals.
In addition to this special "Fully Invested" session on New Year's Eve, FMSC offers packing opportunities at sessions on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays throughout the day and evening in Libertyville. To sign up, visit fmsc.org/volunteer

A Christian non-profit founded in 1987, Feed My Starving Children tackles world hunger by sending volunteer-packed, nutritious MannaPack™ meals to orphanages, schools, clinics and other programs that break the cycle of poverty in developing nations. In the most recent fiscal year, FMSC welcomed 657,000 volunteers to produce 163 million meals shipped to nearly 50 countries. FMSC has maintained the highest four-star rating from Charity Navigator for eight consecutive years and spends 92% of total donations directly on feeding the hungry. Visit fmsc.org.
