Bird-B-Gone Employees Volunteer at Children of the Nations Food Packaging Event

National News

Bird-B-Gone employees helped package dried foods to send to children in Haiti.

| July 6, 2011

MISSION VIEJO, Calif. — Bird-B-Gone recently teamed up with Children of the Nations (a non-profit organization that provides holistic care to orphaned and destitute children across the globe) to help fund the building of new orphanages in Liberia and Sierra Leone. Visit the company’s blog at “Bird-B-Gone Gives Back” for details and updates.

On May 7, Children of the Nations held a food packing event in Rancho Santa Margarita, Calif., where Bird-B-Gone employees and family members came out to volunteer and show support.

The event was designed to invite community members out to volunteer in assembly line packaging of dried foods to send to children in Haiti. By the end of the day, 82,000 meals were packaged. The event made local news “Volunteers assemble food bags for hungry children”(OC Register).

Bird-B-Gone Owner Julie Donoho had a great time connecting with the community and giving time for a good cause:

“It was a pleasure to join in the Children of the Nations Meal Packaging event and see all the other volunteers. This event is done nationwide and gives people of all ages a chance to ‘give back’ by packaging thousands of meals for the hungry in Africa, Dominican Republic, and Haiti.  I was proud to see our Bird-B-Gone family come out on a Saturday and join in the cause.  These events are organized, fun, and a chance for groups like churches, schools, and other organizations to come together for a great cause.  And, I even think Bird-B-Gone might have had the youngest participant, 18-month-old Gianluca Perry.”
