Super Restoration: Helping prepare 124,416 meals for those in need

Super Restoration helped assemble a team of 650 volunteers who spent a weekend preparing an astounding 124,416 meals for hungry children around the world during a recent mobile pack event for Feed My Starving Children. This was the company’s third year participating in this worthwhile event.
 “This was my first year being a part of a Feed My Starving Children event. I took on the role as the event coordinator and began working on this project back in August 2018,” said Jamie O’Camb, executive assistant to Rene Vargas (CEO). “After all the hard work was done and everything was ready to go, I couldn’t believe the event day was finally here. That morning, I made my way to the back to see all the people packing the meals. It truly brought tears to my eyes to see such genuine people and families, taking time out of their weekend to pack meals for starving children. This was something that made a huge impact on me and I will continue to support this cause for a very long time.”
In addition to packing meals, the team also helped raise $30,000 for this worthy cause.

Feed My Starving Children Event Supervisor Louis Hintz acknowledged the team’s hard work by saying, “Thank you so much for an amazing event. Thank you all for having a heart for the precious kids that we feed day in and day out. We had a great time working with you all this weekend and appreciate all the hard work you put into this event! The core team, volunteers and everyone else were all incredible. Thanks again!”

 

TLS: Join us and donate socks to help homeless through February 15

TLS has taken the 519 Pairs of Socks Pledge and we are on our journey to collect them. 519 Pursuit is a non-profit organization designed to bridge the gap between a working society and those working through homelessness. Through collection of sock donations, we will be able to keep a support system throughout the winter months. Although it is not often thought about, socks are one of the most commonly asked-for items in shelters and other working services. Due to the harsh environment that a London winter can bring and the inability to store personal items; some of our friends can be found wearing the same damp pair of socks for days with no dry space to air out their feet or let their socks dry. When our friends wear black or other socks with dye, the damp material leaves black stains on their feet. We ask you consider white socks, however we are welcome to all donated. The goal of 519 Pursuit is to inspire a mass affect within the city of London to come together as a community, and create a better working support system. Through friendship and conversation, our outreach team takes to the streets year round to provide necessary means of warmth and comfort to get through the night. Our outreach team is volunteer based and designed as a friend-helping-friend system. Our volunteers are encouraged to take part in conversation and build rapport. Through trust and consistency, volunteers aspire to share information of already working local services and work to see an increase of use. Please help us to achieve this goal by bringing or sending white socks to TLS by February 15, 2019.
