I want to thank so many of you who helped to contribute to our Haiti meal packing event that was hosted on June 2.
I am not able to explicitly tell who donated from my blog. But we received $6,901 from out-of-state donors for this event. I am going to assume that most all of the out-of-state donations came from my readers. Thank you for that support!
In total, we raised $27,000 for the event and were able to supply 90,452 meals for children in Haiti. We had more than 500 people volunteer for the packing. For a small church in New Jersey, this was an amazing thing.
The meals are now in Kansas and will soon be making their way to Haiti. They should arrive in Haiti by the end of summer. The meals will be going to Mission of Hope, Haiti. Mission of Hope feeds more than 90,000 children each day. Unfortunately, there are still more than 70,000 children on their waiting list. The meals that we were able to prepare will help to take some of those children off the waiting list. 361 children will now have a meal next year because of your generosity.

Our next meal packing event is scheduled for June 1, 2019. We appreciate your prayers and support to make this next event an even greater success.
