In a continued relationship with Children of the Nations, Bird-B-Gone has donated machines to make bricks that will be used in Sierra Leone to build childrens dormitories, schools and other needed buildings.
Building using local materials
The brick making machines use local materials to make the bricks on the building site. This is much more economical and easier to supply as it is difficult to get building materials sent into the outback where most villages are located.
Saturday May 7th Children of the Nations held a food-packing event in Rancho Santa Margarita, CA and Bird-B-Gone employees and family members came out to volunteer and show support.
The event was designed to invite community members to volunteer in assembly line packaging of dried foods to send to children in Haiti. 82,000 meals were packaged. The event made local news “Volunteers assemble food bags for hungry children” and was a BIG success!
At Bird-B-Gone, our motto is “It’s more than just bird control, it’s faith family and friends” and we don’t just say it – we live it!
Bird-B-Gone Owner Julie Donoho had a great time connecting with the community and giving her time for a good cause:

“It was a pleasure to join in the Children of the Nations Meal Packaging event and see all the other volunteers. This event is done nationwide and gives people of all ages a chance to “give back” by packaging thousands of meals for the hungry in Africa, Dominican Republic, and Haiti. I was proud to see our Bird-B-Gone family come out on a Saturday and join in the cause. These events are organized, fun, and a chance for groups like churches, schools, and other organizations to come together for a great cause. And, I even think Bird-B-Gone might have had the youngest participant, 18 month old Gianlucca Perry!”
