Are you looking for a team building event for your company? Why not take part in a GlobalMedic Pack-a-thon!
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic we are still limiting our off-site events as well as larger events in general. We can accommodate smaller groups at our warehouse locations and are happy to discuss those options with you!
What is a Pack-a-thon?
A Pack-a-thon is a great opportunity for your company to be hands-on with your charitable donations. They are unique group volunteering experiences that bring your team together for several hours to pack aid to support families affected by disaster.
What can you expect at a Pack-a-thon?
GlobalMedic provides a pop-up-shop experience. Simply show up and our team will lead your employees through the event. All the tasks are simple, but important, and there is a job for all ability levels.
Team building and/or CSR objective
Connect with us and decide on type of kits, date, location and donation amount
We set up the event – your employees pack kits
We deliver the kits to people in need
What can you build at a Pack-a-thon?
Each Family Emergency Kit contains a water purification solution for a family as well as hygiene items. A solar light, oral rehydration salts and iron deficiency fighting products may also be added to provide a more robust kit.
Emergency Food Kits are designed to be a culturally appropriate solution for families. The food a team assembles for Syria will look completely different compared to the food assembled for the Caribbean. These kits provide important nutritional support for families.
How can my group host a packing event?
Pack-a-thons can be run with 30-300 people so the first step is getting your team together! We also ask for a donation to GlobalMedic to help cover the costs associated with the event. We can bring the event experience directly to your office, or host you at our warehouse.
Contact [email protected] and let us know the date, location, and number of people you can bring out to get started!
