Heritage Christian Academy will make 10,000 meals to feed needy children
May 8, 2018 @ 8:30 am - 2:30 pm
Heritage Christian Academy will be participating in a Feed the Need mission when 10,000 meals for starving children will be packed in the Shades Mountain Community Church gym on May 8th from 8:30 – 2:30pm. Students ages 5 – 18 will be packing food “to make a hands-on difference in the world”. The meals packed consist of rice, vitamins, dried vegetables, and protein. Eighty-five hundred meals will be shipped to Haiti, the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere. Government instability, deforestation and natural disasters have contributed to Haiti’s extreme poverty. The remaining 1500 meals will stay in Birmingham to feed malnourished children in our community.
HCA is partnering with The Champion Group who explains that, “The concept behind Feed the Need is essentially bringing an overseas ‘mission trip’ experience onto a school campus… (Feed the Need) gives participants the opportunity to make a hands-on difference in the world while learning direct character lessons of selflessness, serving others, generosity and gratitude.
The May 8th “Packing Party” will include Students, Faculty, Staff, HCA families and others in the community who would like to participate in the opportunity to serve. Funds raised exceeding the cost of 10,000 meals will go toward school technology enhancement, gym updates and teacher continuing education. For more information visit: http://igfn.usvf/HCAChristian.
