Call for Volunteers: Join The Movement To End World Hunger
RIVERSIDE, California – Oct. 10, 2015 – Today, RighTime® Home Services, a leading provider of air conditioning, heating and plumbing services in Southern California, announced its partnership with Stop Hunger Now in the fight against hunger. More than 400 volunteers and RighTime employees will package meals for the world’s hungry on Saturday, Nov. 14, 2015 from 9 a.m. to 5:45 p.m., at RighTime’s Riverside headquarters located at 3030 Myers St. Stop Hunger Now meal packaging events are a volunteer-based program that coordinates the streamlined packaging of highly nutritious dehydrated meals comprised of rice, soy, vegetables and 22 essential vitamins and minerals. RighTime is asking the Riverside community to join it in the movement and volunteer for the November event. In addition, RighTime is offering all who volunteer or donate to the event 15 percent off any heating, air conditioning or indoor air quality service.*
“Giving back and getting involved in our community is so important to our team at RighTime Home Services,” said Rick Cubas, General Manager of RighTime Home Services in Riverside. “By hosting a meal packaging event, our hope is that we can encourage those more fortunate in our community to help us make a difference in the fight towards a world without hunger.”
Around the world, nearly 805 million people lack adequate food. Stop Hunger Now operates meal packaging locations in 19 cities throughout the U.S. and five international locations in South Africa, Malaysia, the Philippines, Italy and India. More than 450,000 volunteers from corporations, churches, schools and civic organizations have packaged Stop Hunger Now meals. Founded in 1998, Stop Hunger Now has delivered aid and disaster relief supplies in the form of food, medical supplies, clothing, school supplies and more to thousands of disaster victims and other hungry and vulnerable people in 65 countries.
“What we want everyone to know is that hunger is solvable and is the common thread among the world’s most challenging issues. When hunger is targeted, you give leverage and hope to every other cause including poverty, disease, education and the welfare of women and children,” said Rod Brooks, President and CEO of Stop Hunger Now.
This will be RighTime Home Services’ third annual meal packaging event, and the second with Stop Hunger Now. RighTime is hoping to package over one hundred thousand meals and raise $29,000 towards the cause. For more information, to sign up or to make a donation to Stop Hunger Now, call (909) 557 – 1468
