KEY Club's Stop Hunger Now Meal Packing Event
Organized by: Julia Hess
May 01, 2016
The KEY Club at Conestoga High School is trying to raise money for a Stop Hunger Now meal packaging event. Nearly $3,000 is needed in order for us to hold this event. The event produces over 10,000 meals that will go to developing countries. So far we have raised about $800 through in-school fundraisers like bake sales, and even hosted a benefit concert at our local library. But, we still have not raised nearly enough to host our meal packaging event we plan on hosting on April 12. Stop Hunger Now is a non-profit organization that provides meals & other life necessities to countries in need. You can read more about this lovely organization here: http://www.stophungernow.org/about/ Fast Facts: -Each meal costs about $0.29 -About 50% of the population in extreme poverty are children 18 & under. -About 1 in 8 people worldwide are hungry. (That's more than 2.5 times the population of the USA) -Around 795 Million people in the world are chronically malnourished. Please contribute to help Stop Hunger Now. Every penny counts. Think of it this way, if you donate $2.90 that's 10 meals! $29.00 = 100 meals! Thank you so much in advance!
