Los Angeles Volunteers Help Haiti in Big Way

Tuesday, March 16, 2010

Saturday (March 12) marked the 2 month anniversary of Haiti’s destructive earthquake, and compassionate hearts continue to overwhelmingly volunteer their time and effort to help survivors.

More than 1,500 volunteers in the Los Angeles area turned out last Saturday and Sunday to package 1 million meals for Haiti, the latest of these community events coordinated by The Salvation Army and Numana, Inc. Meals contain rice, soy protein, seasoning and vitamin powder in specially-prepared plastic bags, ensuring Haitians receive the sustenance and nutrition they need as their country rebuilds.

The Salvation Army Western Territory has more information about the event and some great photos, so be sure to check out their blog! And THANK YOU to all the volunteers who worked so hard to package 1 million meals for Haiti. We couldn’t do it without you!
