Feed My Starving Children has been providing meals across the globe for more than 30 years and currently delivers more than one million meals across the globe each day. The organization has been helping to feed Ukrainian people in need for the past eight years, so already has the contacts and infrastructure in place to provide meals in Ukraine and in neighboring countries that have welcomed millions of refugees.
“These meals are critically needed now and for the foreseeable future according to everyone involved in helping the Ukrainian people,” said Andy Carr, Vice President of Feed My Starving Children. “The generous support of the New Mexico Ice Wolves and people of New Mexico is appreciated more than mere words can express.”
“It’s an honor to be a small part of this initiative with our partners at the New Mexico Ice Wolves,” said Jonathan Hufnagel of DASH Auctions. “We’ll be rolling up our sleeves to ensure these jerseys get the most exposure they possibly can and raise as much money for the effort as possible.”
“With each dollar amazingly able to provide four meals, every New Mexico Ice Wolves fan can make a big difference to help feed displaced Ukrainian families,” said Stan E. Hubbard, owner of the New Mexico Ice Wolves and Outpost Ice Arenas. “The New Mexico Ice Wolves are hoping to make a big impact with our special jersey night and auction, but also with fans and others in our state helping out.”
