The Impact Foundation recently held its first annual Charity Week of Service event. Held August 8-12, the event offered participants exciting ways to serve the community and give back like never before. Our passion for sharing the healing power of nature lies at the heart of everything we do. The Impact Foundation unites a community of loyal, like-minded individuals, by increasing awareness of nature’s healing power, creating meaningful service opportunities, and engaging with charitable organizations that align closely with our cause. There were a few different ways participants became involved during this special, Charity Week event.
FEED MY STARVING CHILDREN
The Impact Foundation partnered with Feed My Starving Children (FMSC) which provides meal packs to malnourished and starving children around the world. The FMSC meal packs are developed by food science and nutrition professionals to supplement the nutritional needs of children. Donations fund the meal ingredients and volunteers hand-pack the meals. Synergy and Nature’s Sunshine dedicated August 11th and 12th for employees to participate in packing these meals and began with a lofty goal of packing 101,000 meals within these two days. The Feed My Starving Children organization set up their meal pack assembly stations at our Spanish Fork manufacturing facility and employee volunteers filled each packing shift. Here’s how we did:
- 300 employee volunteers
- We surpassed our goal and packed 108,864 total meals!
- Shift #2, alone, packed over 27,000 meals
- 298 children will be fed for an entire year
BACK 2 SCHOOL BACKPACKS AND SNACKS
The Impact Foundation partnered with KUTV for the Back 2 School Backpacks and Snacks campaign. We accepted donations of non-perishable snacks, school supplies, and backpacks at both our Lehi office and Spanish Fork manufacturing facilities. All items collected will be distributed to students across the Granite School District as children head back to school.
- Employees donated over 100 items to KUTV
- Plus, 300 bottles of Nature’s Sunshine children’s vitamins
