Erica worked behind the scene assembling boxes and putting labels on the boxes.
The following is from a letter handed out to the volunteers:
Mercy Meals of Nebraska is a non-profit organization that allows volunteers to package nourishing food that will be delivered to children in need throughout the world. Orphanages, refugee camps, feeding centers, disaster relief centers and local food pantries have been recent recipients of the food.
Through this program, we hope to instill in our children a sense of self-empowerment, civic duty, world awareness, kindness toward their fellow man and appreciation for the blessings in their daily lives. We want then to know that they can make a difference in other people's lives by being informed, by making good choices in their lives, by giving their time and by donating their talents.
This was a great service project for these kids to complete, especially at this time of the year. The project is easy and fun to complete. My kids have done Mercy Meals before and each time they have a good time while helping less fortunate people.
