What a day it will be!

I'm going to make a difference for 500 Haitian school children..

Let me tell you a few things about Haiti:

  • Only 60% of adults can read at a 6th grade level.
  • Their government does not provide school to rural communities.
  • The average income is $350 per year.
  • Some children cannot count of even one meal a day.

Here's my plan:

ADD PERSONAL MESSAGE HERE

I'm going to Teaneck Packathon for Haiti on November 9 to help pack lunches for school children there. We plan to provide a full-year lunch program for 500 kids in two remote Haitian schools.  Volunteers will form assembly lines in the back gym at Grace Lutheran Church in Teaneck to pack over 123,000 meals to be served in the schools in Trois Mares and Chapottin, Haiti. Our meals will be served 4 days a week. For the other day, we want to fund Haitian-sourced lunches to support farms and businesses there.  I want to make sure those chldren can count on lunch every weekday through 2020.

On average, every volunteer packs a box of 240 lunches. "My" box will hold $67 dollars worth of rice, beans, vegetables and vitamins, enough to feed one student for a year. So my goal is to raise over $2,500 to actually pay for the food a bunch of us will pack. Will you help? Together, we really can make a difference!
