With the help of some close friends we have organized and amazing event to help provide short-term food relief for the people of Haiti. This weekend at Sauk Rapids High School we are hosting a Kids Against Hunger (www.kidsagainsthungercm.org) food packaging event. Our goal is to package 1,000,000 meals in two days.
For the Love of Haiti has 3,000 volunteers registered to package 300 people at a time for an hour and half. We have ordered food (90,000 pounds of long-grain rice, 33,000 pounds of soy, 7,300 pounds of vitamin mix, and 3,600 pounds of dry vegetable mix). The only thing that we are missing is more money to help pay for the food. There is still time to donate to this cause! You can donate online via the Central MN Community Foundation (www.communitygiving.org); select the Help for Haiti-Kids Against Hunger Fund. You can also mail a check to Central MN Community Foundation, 101 7th Avenue S. #100 St. Cloud, MN 56301 (In the memo field please write “Help for Haiti-KAH”.)
No donation is too big and no donation is too small. $10 provides 100 meals to someone in desperate need of food.
