Our group has decided to volunteer with Feed My Starving Children(FMSC) which was founded in 1987. Feed My Starving Children (FMSC) is a Christian non-profit organization that provides nutritionally complete meals specifically formulated for malnourished children. Its mission is to feed God’s starving children in different countries who are hungry in body and spirit. Their process is simple. Donations from people fund the meal ingredients and volunteers hand-pack the meals.
The salvation army helps lots of people though the many programs they have to offer. Some of these are alcohol/drug rehabilitation, family sheltering and other family/ children program.

As time proceeds the salvation army is planes on spreading more Christian faith though their good sewactions, they simply wanna make a morally sound world through their charity.
I believe it is very important to care not only for yourself, but those around you who are in need as well. As students, the majority of us are fortunate enough to have three meals a day and lead a healthy life; other students and families within the Los Angeles community do not have such food security. With the strong initiative of providing food for our community, the victory garden would donate a large portion of the food it grows to the UCLA and general Los Angeles food bank. By taking part in the victory garden project, an incredible opportunity for us to help families and children have the food they need presents itself to us. We would be working in the gardens for our pleasure with different community members for a much greater
We created and sold t-shirts, painted faces, and handed out flyers at the 2015 White Squirrel Festival, bringing in $600 for the Trinity Shelter. This year, we are working to raise money for Flint, Michigan so they will have clean water to drink. Being a large part of the club itself is another way I serve the community. The Brevard High School Acceptance Club was founded on the principles of loving one another, creating a better school climate, and spreading compassion and acceptance. We meet regularly to support one another and build
Although most of my involvement has centered around politics, where I have been an active volunteer in the current election cycle, my service also extends to the homeless community in the Quad Cities. After recognizing the extent of homelessness in Davenport, my friend decided to start a nonprofit 5K to benefit a local shelter and I immediately joined in the venture. By working with the shelter rather than independently, we were able to avoid the faults set forth in To Hell With Good Intentions. Our good intentions have donated over $10,000 to King’s Harvest Ministries, who uses funds in a way that raises the standard of living for the local homeless
Jim Withers is an example on how the perception of heroism has changed. Unlike the other two heroes, he is given the title based on what he did for others. As stated on CNN’s website by Kathleen Toner and contributing authors, Jim donated his time and abilities to the homeless by giving them medical care. Over time, his single handed efforts turned into a full scale operation called Operation Safety Net. He has been able to help over 10,000 homeless individuals.
In the neighborhood where I was raised, socializing with homeless individuals became a daily occurrence. My parents could not afford for us to live anywhere else, so we lived in Starrett City, where the government subsidized our apartment. Consequently, the experiences of my youth enabled me to be more sympathetic and compassionate for a community that I grew up with. When learning about the Holy Apostles Soup Kitchen, I was excited to participate in a setting that provided more than just nourishment, but also an opportunity for the underserved to engage in conversation, create friendships, and obtain social amenities. I too made meaningful relationships, both with other volunteers and with guests.
Being homeless is a struggle by itself. Imagine if you also had HIV. Bailey-Boushay House provides what is most of the time, our clients' only meal for the day. Your support has given our clients the strength they need to keep fighting for their lives. While we have accomplished many things to help our clients, there is still more we can do.
Basic health care should be free to everyone because, it could save lives, in the long run it’s cost-effective, and providing free health care health people gain access to insurance. To start off, basic health care should be free for everyone because it could save lives. On the Huffington Post website, Senator Bernie Sanders wrote an article called, ‘Health care is a Right, Not a Privilege.’ In the article he states,” More than 18,000 Americans die from preventable illnesses because they don’t get to a doctor when they should.” If everyone has free health care, less lives will be lost. More lives of young people would be saved. The homeless or uninsured would be able to go to a hospital to get treated.
We would prepare and serve food for homeless people. This was an impactful and eye opening experience for me. The people we served were so grateful and even though they did not have much, they had their faith. This experience ties into Psalm 23 because it exemplifies the message that the Lord loves and cares for all his people; followers of Christ should help other followers. I think God means for us all to help one another so we can all progress and become closer to Him.
