Haiti-One Way to help out

There are many ways you can help out with the situation in Haiti. There are many reputable organizations who are already on the ground there and are doing a wonderful service for the people of Haiti. Consider making a donation to them.

We also heard this Sunday from John Reimer, a member of our church and a board member of Haiti Lifeline Ministry. Check out their website at www.haitilifelineministries.com. They also have a regular presence in Haiti and through your help (financially and physically going on a trip), they plan to be a part of the recovery and rebuilding.

For those with children, I highly recommend taking your child to help with a food packaging event at Numana. It is something that your child can understand and feel a part of something bigger than themselves. It also allows you as a family to serve together. As you know, I am a major supporter of parents and children serving beside each other. See the press release below for more information about Numana and upcoming events.

EMERGENCY RELIEF FOOD PACKAGING EVENT FOR HAITI A GREAT SUCCESS!


Thanks to numerous volunteers from in and around the El Dorado, Kansas area, over half a million (654,870) meals were packaged this weekend to send to the earthquake ravaged people of Haiti. Two container loads of nutritious, life-sustaining meals will be air lifted to Port-au-Prince by Tuesday. Numana is not just one person or one group of people. Numana is made up of caring volunteers like you who want to make a difference in the world. It's because of YOU that this weekend was a success!

Haiti still needs our help. The Salvation Army has asked for the volunteer network of Numana to take on a goal of packaging ONE MILLION meals next weekend, January 23rd and 24th. The upcoming Million Meal packaging event will take place at Britt Brown Arena in the Kansas Coliseum just north of Wichita from 8AM - 6PM on Saturday and 1PM - 7PM on Sunday. As with the event this weekend, PACKAGING VOLUNTEERS WILL NOT NEED TO REGISTER to help.
