Volunteers have a hands-on way to give back through Food For The Poor’s new Volunteer Program.
The charity officially launched the program in April with its first Hearts United Community Day, an event that brings together schools, churches, businesses and community-minded individuals.
Throughout the year, FFTP hosts groups for small packing events and invites volunteers in to help sort or pack goods sent to the countries served by the charity. Those opportunities will be increasing as the charity looks to engage with volunteers who want to do something meaningful.
FFTP is hosting a special Join The Pack event on July 23 at FAU Arena in Boca Raton to help families in Ukraine. Volunteers will pack MannaPack rice meals for longtime trusted partner Feed My Starving Children, which is providing the meals to families in Ukraine.
Three more Hearts United Community Day events are planned on August 20, November 11 and December 3.
“We love the name because it’s what we do,” said Pennie Stagnitta, FFTP’s Volunteer Program Coordinator. “We’re united in God’s work. Our hearts are in everything that we do. Our hearts are with the people that we serve. People who volunteer have the largest hearts of all. We can’t thank them enough for being so generous with their time.”

Many of the events wouldn’t be possible without the support of FFTP’s partners and compassionate donors.
Cash donations are needed to furnish the items for the kits packed during the Hearts United Community Day events. To donate, text HEARTS1 to 51555 or go to www.FoodForThePoor.org/heartsunited.
