Greystar Joins Initiative to Package 100,000 Meals for Ghana
TAMPA, FLORIDA - Greystar joins forces with DeBartolo Development and the Kobel Family Foundation to
help feed the hungry. Feeding Children Everywhere will be facilitating a food packing event where
volunteers can donate their time to package 100,000 meals for hungry children in Ghana. These healthy
meals will be immediately shipped to the King's Voice School and Orphan Care Center in Ghana, Africa.
Greystar has pledged a $5,000 donation and is currently in the process of recruiting 100 volunteers from its
corporate office and Bay Area communities to assist with the initiative. This event will be held at the
DeBartolo Development Offices at 4401 W Kennedy Blvd # 3 Tampa, FL 33609 on June 1st, 2011 from
8:00am-4:30pm.
“Community is one of our Pillars of Excellence. Partnering with Debartolo Development and the Kobel
Family Foundation gives us a unique opportunity to make a profound impact on the lives of the people of
Ghana. We are committed to do our part to make a difference in communities both locally and around the
world,” said Andrew Livingstone Executive Director of Real Estate at Greystar.
Feeding Children Everywhere is an organization that exists to mobilize and empower people to feed the
hungry. They ship food around the world to different qualified feeding partners, as well as fighting hunger in
local communities in the United States. Under the leadership of Feeding Children Everywhere, over 4
Million meals have been sent around the world, with millions more to come. For this particular event, the
food will go directly to one of their partners in Ghana who have been yearning for food relief for some time
now. Today, around 1.02 billion people are starving and malnourished. The continent of Africa hosts a large
percentage of those who are hungry, and on June 1st the Tampa Bay area will unite to help make a
difference in the lives of those who desperately need food in Ghana. Feeding Children Everywhere has
developed a way to package and send a nutritious meal across the world for only 25 cents. The real cost to
feed 100,000 people for this event is only $25,000.
Donations are accepted the day of the event or online at www.feedingchildreneverywhere.com/donate and
then by clicking on Kobel Foundation. 300 additional volunteers are needed to assist with package the
meals. There will be 5 shifts of volunteers from 8:00am-4:30pm. If you or someone you know would like to
