Prior to attending Montana State University (MSU) where he recently earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Civil Engineering, Charles served in the United States Marine Corps as a Sergeant. In addition to his education, Charles gained hands-on experience through a summer internship where he conducted on-site construction observation and monitored construction activities to ensure compliance with plans and specifications.

Recently, 27 RPA volunteers put together 1,050 Kid Packs for the Helena Food Share in just one hour! RPA staff, retirees, and family members volunteer a few times a year to assemble Kid Packs that get distributed to nearly 1,200 Helena area students on a weekly basis. Each Kid Pack contains a variety of kid-friendly foods that provides a source of nutrition over the weekend during the school year.
“I have been building Kid Packs with different organizations for several years and I am excited that RPA has embraced the Helena Food Share mission to help kids at risk of hunger in our community.” – Jeremy Perlinski
