As our brothers and sisters in Haiti continue to struggle to stay alive during this time of political unrest, economic instability, and a pandemic, you may be wondering, "What can I do to help?" We have an opportunity for you and your loved ones.
Our February 20, 2021 Meal Pack event is your chance to not only provide nutritious meals for orphans, children, and families, but also bring together members of your family, church, scout troop, or neighborhood to accomplish something GOOD this year!
The Haitian families we serve are in desperate need of affordable nutritious food. According to the Haitian Times, there has been a 20% increase in the price of rice, beans, wheat, flour, corn, sugar, and vegetable oil since March 2020. Since last year these same food items have increased in price by 25%, leaving vulnerable children and families unsure of where to get their next meal.
By spending two hours on February 20, you and your family can help provide 10,000 meals to those in need! Everyone will stay safe and healthy as we pack the food with masks and gloves, and we socially distance volunteers. All you have to do is sign up, show up on time, and stick to the easy-to-follow instructions provided by our partners from Lifeline Ministries.
The cost of this event is $25/person, $15/child, or $75/family. A ratio of 2:1 must be observed for children to adults. Children 6 or over are welcome to participate.
We look forward to seeing you at Lifespring Church at 10 AM on February 20, 2021. Lifespring Church is at 14735 Wood Farm Road in Plainfield, Illinois.
