Meals packed: 330,696 (goal was 300,000). These meals will feed 906 kids for 1 year. 1,167 volunteers packed this year: the goal was 1,500 (there was a number of no shows).
Colorado Springs events have packed a total of 3,149,712 since 2009. As of November 30, there is a $1,500 shortfall of the $66,000 needed to pay the food bill.
The FMSC organizing committee will meet in January and decide if they will host again in 2016, and may think about moving the event up a month if possible, as some say being too close to Thanksgiving is a problem. They also need to have a solid financial plan, as they seem to take in less and less each year during the event.
The FMSC organizing committee is also looking for anyone interested in joining the leadership team and/or churches/groups who want to get more involved. If you are interested, please see John Campbell. The leadership team will meet in January to decide if we can move forward with another event in 2016.
Grateful acknowledgement to all the volunteers who assisted through prayer, packing, and financially supporting this year’s successful FMSC MobilePack event!
