FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., Sept. 20, 2016 /Christian Newswire
/ -- Roughly 100,000 Haitian kids under the age of 5 suffer from malnutrition. It's a fact not lost on the Bethany Christian School students who will pack rice, soybeans and other vitamin-rich foods, then hand deliver the meals to the orphaned children of Haiti.
More than 300 students at Bethany Christian School in Fort Lauderdale will team up on Tuesday, September 27th, 2016 from 9:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. to make a difference for kids in Haiti. It's all part of a campaign called "Feed The Need."
Bethany's Feed the Need Event will impact lives by enabling BCS to purchase, assemble and distribute 10,000 meals to malnourished children in Haiti. From toddlers to tweens, all the students at Bethany are helping to feed the need a number of different ways:
In addition to packing the meals, Bethany Christian students will be collecting donations to help purchase school supplies and clothing needs for orphaned children in the Village of Hope Orphanage-Haiti; they will be entering into their second year engaging in a pen-pal program with these orphaned Haitian children; and Bethany's older students will go on a Spring Break Mission Trip in March to visit the Village of Hope orphanage, meet the children, play with them, and hand deliver some of the meals packed for them. This visit will bring Tuesday's event full circle.
Bethany's faculty and staff are engaged and excited that they are teaching their students to be servant-minded and to think of others before themselves. In addition to giving them an education, they are showing them that the question is not "IF they can make an impact in the world," but "HOW they can make an impact in the world."
All media is welcome to the event. Pictures and video will also be available upon request. Please contact Marne MacPhee at 954-522-2554 x211 for more information or questions.
