An unplanned but very real benefit received from a HeartlandKAH food packing event is the satisfaction and engagement that volunteers experience from attending. Not only do your efforts feed many children and families, but you will walk away with a feeling that is difficult to create by just handing over a check to any other nonprofit.
For many, it is the ultimate hands-on contribution that, because of its simplicity, individuals from ages 8 to 80 are able to participate in. Volunteers are composed of many diverse backgrounds, from their schools and churches to the civic organizations and neighborhood groups they surround themselves with. It takes a village to feed a village, and ultimately we are one big family doing our part to help combat starvation all over the world.
