BluSky Chicago Office Succeeds in Packing Over 101,000 Life-Saving Meals
Over 350 volunteers gathered at Chicago-area office to benefit Feed My Starving Children
ROLLING MEADOWS, IL – June 6, 2023 – BluSky Restoration Contractors, LLC, a leading national property restoration company in the U.S., and hundreds of community members worked to feed thousands of starving children in the developing world. Through a partnership between BluSky and Feed My Starving Children (FMSC), volunteers set a goal to prepare over 101,000 life-saving meals at our FMSC MobilePack event. We are pleased to announce that this goal was met, and thousands of children around the world will benefit from our one-day event. The MobilePack took place May 19, 2023 at the BluSky Chicago-area campus: 3200 Squibb Avenue, Rolling Meadows, IL.
A total of over 350 community member volunteers came through BluSky’s facility to generously give their time. Volunteers packed 468 boxes of specially formulated food, designed to meet the needs of severely malnourished children. This is enough to feed 276 children every day, for an entire year. Lively music was played, a gong sounded when each station finished packing a box, and fun was had by all. We will find out in the next couple months where the food will be safely delivered by FMSC.
This is the fourth FMSC MobilePack hosted at this facility; prior to merging, J.C. Restoration hosted in 2016, 2017 and 2019, having packed a total of 342,144 meals. In addition to community members, friends, and clients of BluSky lending a helping hand, we extend a thank you to all of our sponsors: Flood Brothers, Enterprise, Paycheck Solutions, Aramsco, Storm Electric, Daniel Lesus Architects, M&M Electrical Contractors, First Centennial Mortgage, Howard M. Zavell Dickler, Kahn, Slowikowski & Zavell, Ltd., JGW Construction, BH Construction & Flooring, Inc, Ray’s Plumbing, and Agents Insurance Services.
“Giving back is of tremendous importance to everyone at BluSky, and to have had the opportunity a fourth time here locally to make an impact such as this for these children is remarkable. We are so humbled by this experience, and are beyond grateful to our staff, friends, and sponsors for their assistance in making this a success. We are looking forward to doing this again next year,” remarked Steve Rost, Chicago office vice president.
