North Shore Packathon for Haiti
On October 21, 22 and 23, volunteers from across the North Shore will gather to pack 100,000 lunches for schoolchildren in the remote mountain village of St. Louis d'Ayiti, Haiti. Volunteers will gather for six two-hour shifts at Christ Church (Episcopal) of Hamilton and Wenham, 149 Asbury St., Hamilton. Given the continuing Covid problem, we will offer participants both indoor and outdoor packing stations.
Participants will be trained to work assembly lines to pack vitamin-fortified meals of rice, beans and dehydrated vegetables. They will experience the satisfaction of hands-on work to help others, and will come away from the experience with a better understanding of profound, "no-safety-net" poverty, and the importance of education in building a more resilient future for Haiti.
All ages (5–105) and abilities are welcome to participate. To sign up for a packing session (and/or to donate to help defray the cost of the 100,000 meals), go to northshorepackathon.org
The Packathon is an outreach of Future Forward for Haiti, a 501(c)3 nonprofit licensed as a fundraising organization by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
