Stop Hunger Now!
On Friday, May 16th, SLA will be participating in the Stop Hunger Now movement as their final community volunteer day. Stop Hunger Now is a mission designed for international poverty relief. Their mission: “To end hunger in our lifetime by providing food and life-saving aid to the world’s most vulnerable and by creating a global commitment to mobilize the necessary resources.”
The agency was founded in 1998, and since then has served in sixty-five countries and fed over 144,000,000 families. They are a non-profit organization and run mainly with volunteered help and funds. SLA will be working to package around 20 to 30 thousand meals to be shipped to poor families all over the world. But that requires great funds.
For every meal SLA packs, we must twenty-nine cents. This may not seem like a lot, but it adds up.
