Plymouth Helps Kids in Need

Last week, over 50 of our Plymouth teammates spent their afternoon volunteering at Feed My Starving Children in nearby Chanhassen, MN.  Founded in 1987, this organization hand-packs meals specially formulated for malnourished children, which are shipped to their partners around the world including orphanages, schools, clinics and feeding programs.

During their two-hour shift, the group packed food for shipment to needy children in the Dominican Republic. In total, 139 boxes of food, or 30,024 meals, which is enough to feed 82 children for a full year was packed! They also presented a $2,500 donation on behalf of the group funded by the OneBeacon Charitable Trust. The $2,500 covers costs to feed 12 children for a full year!

 

In addition to their meal packing efforts, the Plymouth office also conducted a school supply drive. Over 150 supplies were collected and donated to the Minneapolis schools. All kinds of materials were donated—from binders and folders, to pencils and markers. Way to go team Plymouth!
