On Saturday August 6 the Jain Temple in Richfield Ohio held a working event called Compassion in Action where the group packed 10,000 meals for Refugees around the World. Joining them was Richfield Mayor Michael Wheeler and his wife. In the video you can see the well-organized system they used to prepare the meals and at the end there is a group photo.
In fact, the volunteers worked so hard and it was so organized that they finished packing 10,000 meals before the afternoon shift even arrived!
During the event, the workers took a short break to hear remarks from speakers including Richfield Mayor Michael Wheeler, Meena Jain, President of Jain Society of Greater Cleveland and Ramesh Shah.
Here are other images of the volunteers packing 10,000 meals for refugees.
