For its annual charitable holiday gift, rug manufacturer Feizy donated $25,000 to Feed My Starving Children.
FMSC is a non-profit that provides nutritious meals to starving children in 70 countries around the world. With the help of last year’s donation, FMSC opened its first permanent site locally in the Dallas area, near Feizy’s corporate headquarters. This year’s donation will continue to support the work of the FMSC providing additional funding to fill the gap in giving caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Feed My Starving Children is grateful for Feizy Rugs and their desire to feed hungry children around the world,” said Mark Crea, FMSC CEO. “Their financial support will contribute towards the goal of packing 50 million meals annually with the help of over 150,000 volunteers. Feizy continues to set an example in the Dallas community of selfless service to those in need.”
Since its inception in 1987, FMSC has provided more than 2 billion meals to hungry, malnourished children globally. In an effort to eradicate starvation and build a brighter future for kids around the world, FMSC provides volunteer packed MannaPacks meals packed by FMSC volunteers that have been scientifically formulated with vitamin- and mineral-fortified rice or potatoes to deliver an excellent source of protein, carbohydrates and key nutrients that assist in rehydration and nourishment for people ages 6 months to adult.
“Supporting disadvantaged, neglected communities globally is a priority to Feizy and FMSC is a wonderful organization that’s really changing the landscape of these individuals’ lives. As a company, we’ve participated in FMSC meal pack events on numerous occasions and know first-hand how great an impact one event can make, so helping to establish a permanent facility here in our area was something the whole company felt strongly about,” said Leah Feizy, principal. “We are dedicated to helping this cause, and look forward to participating in future meal packs as part of our own corporate mission.”
With eight permanent sites nationally and MobilePack events throughout the U.S., FMSC offers many opportunities to get involved as volunteers pack nutritious meals to send around the world to starving children.
