BENEFITING: AMERICAN JEWISH JOINT DISTRIBUTION COMMITTEE INC
EVENT DATE: Nov 24, 2013
We have independently organized a team to participate in the NYCRuns Festival of Lights 5K in an effort to raise money and awareness for Healthy Eating for Healthy Minds, which is a school feeding and nutrition program at Ecole Nouvelle Zoranje in Village de La Renaissance, Zoranje, Haiti. This program will benefit 665 students (from kindergarten to ninth grade) and staff per year.
Our program is twofold: 1. Students and staff will receive two balanced meals each day so they are better able to focus and excel; 2. A nurse will monitor the students' health and provide educational opportunities for the community to understand the importance of good nutrition.
It costs $10 to provide food for one child for the year, and $43 to feed, monitor, and educate one child for the year. Together we can make a difference to help feed children in Haiti who have lived through the devastation and loss of natural disaster.
Thank you so much for all of your support!
