American colleagues help to feed children and build a home
Aspen’s API employees took part in two initiatives for Mandela Day.
The team from Des Plaines in Illinois assisted Feed My Starving Children (FMSC) by packing 116 boxes of food. This contribution constitutes 25,056 meals that will feed 65 children for a year. The food is destined for Nicaragua.
FMSC is a Christian non-profit organisation that provides nutritionally complete meals specifically formulated for malnourished children.
Sioux City employees volunteered to work on the construction of a home through Habitat for Humanity to benefit a less fortunate family.
Habitat for Humanityis a global non-profit housing organisation working in local communities across all 50 states in the USA and in approximately 70 countries.
Only 5 volunteers could be accommodated on the site and those involved agreed that their contribution toward building the home for a family that they don’t even know was truly rewarding and left them with a valuable sense of accomplishment by making a difference for others.
