Everybody Loves a Packathon!
New! for Boston’s North Shore!
Shout out to our teaneck volunteers:
You are the greatest! You packed 650,000 meals over the last six years! You provided full lunch programs for the Light and Peace School students in Trois Mares and Chapottin for six years running! As never before, they are progressing through the grades, graduating, qualifying, and attending more advanced schools, thanks to you!
We’re planning our 7th Annual Teaneck Packathon for Haiti for November 9, 2019. And we hope to see you there!
Can you spare 2 hours Friday or Saturday, October 25-26? Join more than 400 volunteers from the North Shore of Boston to pack school lunches for kids in Haiti. These kids often go to school hungry and do not eat all day until, hopefully, they have some dinner with their family. But many cannot count on even one meal each day. That’s no way to learn. No way to fight the diseases that so often accompany profound hunger. You can help change all that. Packathon volunteers will learn of the need and form efficient assembly lines packing rice, soy protein, dehydrated vegetables and vitamins.
Volunteers will meet Friday, October 25 from 6:30-8:30pm or Saturday October 26, from 9-11am, noon-2, and 3-5pm in the community room of Christ Church at 149 Asbury Street in South Hamilton, Massachusetts. While this event is free so everybody can come, we need to raise some money to make it happen.
Our goal is to raise $25,000, which includes:
$17,000 for the food we’ll pack, and
$8,000 to buy land for a new school in St. Louis d’Ayiti.
Please Donate Now to help us fund North Shore Packathon for Haiti and register for a packing session Saturday, October 26. We hope to see you there with all your friends. We will make a difference for lots of needy children.
