Florida Weekly- Ho! Ho! Hope for Haiti effort results in 100,000 meals

More than 200 volunteers transformed the cafeteria of North Naples Middle School into a holiday party for two hours one day earlier this month with a goal of packing 75,000 Meals of Hope bound for Haiti. Hope for Haiti’s Next Generation board works with Steve Popper of Meals of Hope to organize the annual effort and this year exceeded the goal by 25,000 meals.

They also raised more than $10,000 to help cover the cost of shipping the meals to the impoverished Caribbean country.

Hope for Haiti Next Generation board members Melissa Hedberg and Nicole McGinnis co-chaired the event. Students and families of Gulf Coast High School stepped up as premier sponsor for the second year.

“Up until now, these students have been learning computers theoretically on a chalk board,” said Carl R. Kuehner, chairman and CEO of BLT, in a prepared statement announcing the project. “That is a major obstacle for kids trying to succeed in this world, and to have that obstacle removed is empowering for them. The majority of these students have never had the opportunity to actually touch or use a computer or access the incredible wealth of information and communication that’s available.

“Today that changes,” he said. “We believe this could have an immeasurable positive impact on their lives.”
