Good Works Project

by Robert Conroy, CPCU, CIC on July 31, 2014

CPCU Meals from the Heartland 2010 Team

Meals from the Heartland

Join us for a fun and rewarding experience on August 28,2014 at 2:30 pm in Hy-Vee Hall.  Meals from the Heartland is a wonderful non-profit organization founded locally in September of 2008.  The goal of this organization is to package meals for delivery to starving people around the world.  Last year, Meals from the Heartland packaged more than 7.7 million meals that were used around the world and in our neighborhoods.  Did you know that 18,000 children die each day from hunger-related causes?

Please consider volunteering a few hours of your time to help make a difference.  Get to know your colleagues on a whole new level!  If you are willing and able to assist with this project, we guarantee you will not be disappointed. Click here to RSVP.

If you have any questions about this opportunity, please contact Jeff Wilson (jeff.wilson@theimtgroup.com) or Craig Green at (greenc36@nationwide.com).
