MobilePack #4 An Amazing Success Packing Over 109K Meals
Another MobilPack has come and gone, I can't tell you how good it makes me feel to be a small part of it and to know we're actually helping children get the vital nutrition they need, not just to survive but to thrive.
I'll give you the final numbers in a minute for the Texarkana Tacos 4 Life MobilePack #4, but first I wanted to take a moment to thank all the volunteers who gave their time and talents to make it happen. Pictured up top are some of the volunteers from Table 6, we're not sure how many boxes we filled, but we know it was over 20.
In all, there were 352 volunteers who donated at least a couple of hours this past Friday and Saturday to do something for others in this world. Some donated a lot more time than that, but thanks go to any and all no matter how much time they had to give, the point is they did it and got the job done.
Seriously, the next time you have an opportunity to do this, whether it's just you, a small group of friends or family, a large church or civic group, a scout troop, or whatever, you should do it.
Tacos 4 Life restaurants host these events all the time. Toney Livingston and his family get to make a difference not only in their community but also helping children in over 90 countries all over the world through Feed My Starving Children, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
Thanks also goes to Texas A&M University Texarkana for letting this be done in the Patterson Student Center gymnasium, it was the first time I've had a chance to see the inside of this building, very nice.
Tacos 4 Life Texarkana owners Toney and Sandy Livingston have done a great job with their business and the mission it has, they deserve a huge pat on the back as well. Are you ready for the tally?
Final numbers for Texarkana MobilePack #4:
- Volunteers: 352

- Meals packaged: 109,080
- Children fed for one year: 298
