Feed My Starving Children (FMSC) is a Christian organization founded in 1987. Through MobilePack events, FMSC is able to partner with local community organizations to send healthy, safe meals to malnourished children around the world. Thanks to volunteers packing and covering the expense of the meals, each meal costs less than 25 cents to produce. Since 1987, FMSC has distributed more than 2 billion meals in nearly 70 countries.
The 7th Lancaster County FeedMy Starving Children MobilePack will take place Friday-Sunday, March 25-27, 2022, at Willow Street Mennonite Church, 399 E. Penn Grant Road, Willow Street, PA 17564. 1,250 volunteers will provide 300,000 meals to help alleviate world hunger! To date, our meals have gone to Somalia, Haiti, Belize, Dominican Republic, Malawi and Uganda. Working together over the last 6 years, more than 6,500 volunteers from our community have come together to send more than 1.3 million meals to those most in need around the world!
If you are age 5-205, WE NEED YOU!!!!!
How does it work? 1,250 volunteers work during 2 hour shifts to provide 300,000 meals in 3 days. The volunteers come from churches, businesses, friends, relatives, co-workers and anyone else who would like to participate. It is an awesome opportunity for families and friends to volunteer and spend time together for a great cause!
COVID 19 Precautions:Masks are not required but may be worn if desired. Hand-washing stations will be implemented this year. Increased disinfecting practices between shifts per COVID-19 protocols will be in place. All volunteers need to preregister online.
Can anyone do it? For safety and efficiency, required student-to-adult ratios are put in place:
K-2nd grade 1 student to 1 adult
3rd-6th grade 3 students to 1 adult
7th-9th grade 4 students to 1 adult
10th-12th grade 5 students to 1 adult
Sit down jobs are available as needed.
Does it cost to participate? Every individual who signs up for a packing shift is encouraged to make a personal goal of contributing a minimum of $52. At the price of less than 25 cents a meal, this covers the cost of 1 box of packed meals (216 meals) which is the average amount a single volunteer packs in a 2 hour period.

The Civil Engineering Construction Technology program will launch in the fall of 2022. We’re accepting applications now!
The civil engineering construction industry provides tremendous career advancement, including transformational financial growth.
The theory and hands-on field portions of this program will allow students to develop the skills to work in the construction of roadways, municipal and state infrastructure projects, underground utilities, horizontal site development, and construction of water and wastewater infrastructures.
If you like to work outside with innovative equipment, civil construction is right for you. There will also be opportunities to gain field experience during a summer internship.
Thaddeus Stevens also offer an Associate’s Degree in Water and Environmental Technology.
The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection requires that operators of drinking water and wastewater treatment facilities are certified. Certification is obtained through a combination of exams and operating systems. The completion of an approved associate degree program significantly reduces the number of years of operating experience required for certification. Students in the Water and Environmental Technology program gain the knowledge, skills, and abilities necessary for successful completion of Department of Environmental Protection examinations.

Each day, over 200 people are injured and 4 people are killed in traffic accidents in Pennsylvania.
At Metzger Wickersham, we have represented thousands of people injured in auto accidents, and we know how a serious or fatal car crash can devastate a victim’s family, friends and the surrounding community.
Many motor vehicle crashes are caused by risky behaviors like driving under the influence of alcohol or texting while driving. These types of accidents are especially heartbreaking because they are fully preventable.
Metzger Wickersham’s scholarship program encourages students to take a stand against dangerous driving. The Road to Safety Scholarship Contest provides high school seniors with the opportunity to submit a creative project about the dangers of drunk driving and/or distracted driving for the chance to win college scholarship money. The ultimate goal of the contest is to help spread the message to drive with safety in mind all the time!
First place winners will receive a $1,000 scholarship, second place winners will receive $750 and third place winners will receive $500.
Enter Metzger Wickersham’s Road to Safety Scholarship Contest by submitting a creative project that educates people about the perils of dangerous driving. In your own creative way, tell us how teens can drive with safety in mind, all the time.
