Giving Back to the Community 🗓 🗺
ASQ has a reputation and reach to bring together the diverse quality champions who are transforming our world. Social Responsibility (SR) is a key element of ASQ organization offerings. ASQ’s Social Responsibility Organization (SRO) brings together SR and quality professionals to generate ideas and improve the world. ISO 26000: Guidance on Social Responsibility defines social responsibility as responsibility of organization for the impacts of its decisions and activities on society and the environment through transparent and ethical behavior that contributes to sustainable development, including health and welfare of the society.
ASQ Chicago Section is proud to announce its first ‘Giving Back to the Community’ event under the SR program initiatives. This first charity event will take place:
December 19, 2015 (Saturday) from 7-9pm
Feed My Starving Children (FMSC) Organization
555 Exchange Court, Aurora, IL
Founded in 1987, FMSC is a non-profit organization committed to feeding children hungry in body and spirit. The approach is simple: volunteers hand-pack dry meals (MannaPack) specifically formulated for malnourished children, and FMSC send those meals to partners around the world where they’re used to operate clinics and feeding programs to break the cycle of poverty. FMSC food has reached more than 70 countries around the world. In 2014, FMSC passed one billion meals produced over its history with over 900,000 volunteers contributing to its charitable efforts. FMSC’s vision is to eliminate starvation in children throughout the world by helping to instill compassion in people to hear and respond to the cries of those in need. By earning Charity Navigator’s highest rating for 10 consecutive years, FMSC is among the nation’s 1% most-trustworthy charities.
