Hope for Haiti, August 14, Grace Church of Powell
Did you know that $40 can feed 285 people in Haiti? Grace Church of Powell, Ohio, will be hosting a food packing session on August 14 with a goal to fill a 40-foot container with over 280,000 meals for the people of Haiti. We will be joining resources with a Westerville based mission called Lifeline (http://www.lifeline.org/). Lifeline has developed an assembly line like process to package a nutritious rice based meal for the people of Haiti. Lifeline has the ability to ship the food to Haiti where it will be distributed to the people through over 20 different missions. The total cost is about 14 cents per meal.
• Participants will spend a 2-hour shift measuring, bagging, weighing, sealing, boxing, and loading boxes onto pallets and into the 40-foot container to be shipped to Haiti.
• Groups should plan on 2 1/2 hours total at Grace Church for registration, prayer, instructions, and light refreshments before/after the 2 hours of bagging. The first shift will begin at 8am, and the last shift will begin at 4pm.
• We ask for a tax-deductible donation of $40 per person for each 2 hours of bagging. The donation supports the food, supplies, and shipping. Each donation will pay for approximately 285 meals.
• All ages are welcome to bag…a great project for families, individuals, youth groups, churches, scouts, senior citizen groups, etc.
