What's happening with our chapters around the globe...
It's been a busy season for our chapters in Singapore and the United States as they continue to organize creative and fun ways for supporters to get involved with CFC!
Getting creative in Singapore:
Yoga poses and rolls of the dice
Despite seasonal rain showers, yoga enthusiasts of all ages participated in Yoga in the Park
workshops for adults and children on Saturday April 23rd. Instructors from Alpha Balance
led the morning's practice and everyone left feeling refreshed.
Supporters gathered at the beautiful home of Denise Palladino and John Venn
on May 6th for a Balinese Couples Bunco
evening. The event raised enough money to support two months of teacher training. CFC friends enjoyed great times laughing and rolling the dice.
Austin Beauty Event supports CFC
Fifty people attended an evening event in Austin, Texas hosted by Dr. Barbarino
of The Aesthetic Institute at Dell Laser Consultants (at right with CFC Founder Jamie Amelio)
. The event offered attendees free beauty treatments and raffle prizes, and contributed USD$6000 through entrance fees and raffle ticket purchases.
Midwest Chapter energizes packing parties for CFC partner Feed My Starving Children
Members of the Midwest chapter have been busy helping CFC partner Feed My Starving Children (FMSC) assemble thousands of packaged meals at packing parties. FMSC partners with CFC to provide nutritional meals to support our Food for Thought program.
Amanda Wilhoit and fellow Skyline High School CFC club members from Ann Arbor, Michigan (at left) volunteered during their Spring Break. Their industrious team packed 32,000 nutritious meals in a two-hour shift!
The latest group to participate included students from Libertyville High School
in Libertyville, Illinois (at right).
This was a great introduction for these students who will travel to Siem Reap later this summer on a service trip.
