Hello Dear Supporter,
As COVID-19 continues to spread, the future has never felt so unpredictable. These are indeed challenging times for us all. We hope this message finds you in good spirit and health.
COVID-19 is impacting the most defenseless members of our already vulnerable community. In response, Haitian Association of Indiana (HAI) is requesting assistance from you to support our weekly Drive-Thru Food Distribution and Delivery. Now more than ever, the Haitian community in Indiana needs us. And we need you.
The objective of the Drive-Thru Food Distribution & Delivery initiative is to help lessen the issue of food insecurity that is now widespread in the Haitian community. Through the generosity of the HAI leadership and the support of kindhearted members of our community, we have sustained this program for 4 weeks and served over 120 families. However, without an additional infusion of funds, we will not be able to extend this effort. The cost to provide the weekly bare minimum (rice, beans, oil) to a family of 4 is approximately $15.
We hope to extend this program through the end of the summer while helping to transition families to self-sustainability through our workforce development program. However, the extension will require upwards of $25,000. Any help would go a long way. We see firsthand the positive impact that the program makes in our community and we believe it is worth your investment.
Thank you for supporting our community in this time of crisis. We look forward to your response.
Stay safe and well,
Haitian Association of Indiana
