You can make a difference!

On October 25 & 26, 2019, we're going to pack over 50,000 school lunches for hungry kids in Haiti.

Most of the kids in St. Louis d'Ayiti come from families whose parents average $350/year working land they do not own, who cannot read, and who cannot afford even one meal for their children each day.These kids miss a lot of school helping with younger siblings or working alongside their parents. But our school lunches will boost attendance like nothing else! 

Future Forward for Haiti is looking for 400 North Shore volunteers, aged 5-105. We will host four 2-hour family-friendly, educational and practical work sessions, where you'll see the problems students face in the outlying mountains of the poorest country in our hemisphere--and get busy helping  them.

Our partners at Feed the Hunger will bring four tons of ingredients, train and organize all our volunteers into assembly lines for packing, then truck the food away, ship, and deliver it to the LIght and Peace School in St. Louis d'Ayiti. Scroll down to view Packathon video.

Please register for one (or more!) a packing session Friday, October 25 from 6:30-8:30 pm, or Saturday October 26, 9–11am, noon–2, or 3–5 pm at Christ Church of Hamilton and Wenham,149 Asbury Street  in South Hamilton. You'll be glad you did.

As we prepare for this event, we must raise $35,000 to cover the costs of:

  • Rice, beans, dried vegetables and vitamins to  pack (4 tons of food), 
  • $8,000 to purchase land for a new school,
  • $10,000 to dig a foundation for that school.

This is a free event so everyone can come help pack, but we really need your financial help. Please DONATE NOW to draw over 100 Haitian children to regular school attendance with lunch every weekday through 2020.

If you prefer to give with a check, please write it to North Shore Packathon for Haiti and mail it to Tom Skinner at 9 Juniper Street in Wenham, MA 01984.
Future Forward for Haiti  is a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit with no paid employees so over 95% of your gift will go to Haiti. You can find us at

Every gift helps!
