After Hurricane Maria and Hurricane Irma tragically struck the island of Puerto Rico earlier this year, millions were left without food and shelter. The only option for residents to receive meals during the horrific aftermath was through donations and the gracious help of volunteers to prepare meals for shipping.
On Wednesday, October 18th, members of the Semcasting Automotive Solutions team did just that. The group signed up with Feeding Children Everywhere’s ‘Hope for Puerto Rico’ effort located in Orlando, FL to prepare meal kits to be shipped directly to FEMA for immediate distribution to families devastated by the storms this year. In their two hours of volunteer service, the Automotive Solutions team prepared a total of 358 meals.
After 19 days and over 54,000 volunteers, a total of 4.4 million meal kits were packaged and shipped to hurricane victims in Puerto Rico.
