Stop Hunger Now - Crystal River Charity Event to Feed Children

Saturday, February 25th at 8:30 am, local organizations like the Rotary Clubs and Citrus-Hernando Inn of Court, along with local volunteers, will gather in the Crystal River High School Cafeteria to participate in a Stop Hunger Now meal packaging event.

The volunteers, which are expected to exceed 150 in number, will work together to package filling, nutrient-rich meals which will be sent to under-nourished school children around the world. Last year's event, chaired by Attorney Keith Taylor, saw over 100,000 meals packaged which were shipped by Stop Hunger Now, an international aid organization, to schools in Vietnam. He is excited to have the same level of success this year.

If you would like to get involved by volunteering your time, please contact our office and speak to Angela. The whole family is welcome. If you would like to donate, each meal costs only 25 cents, so even small donations can make a big difference for hungry children worldwide.
