Help RHA Stop Hunger

posted 20 hours ago by Casey Fletcher

The Residence Hall Association needs YOUR help!
Stop Hunger Now is RHA’s annual event in which student volunteers help package meals for those around the globe who are malnourished and don’t know where their next meal may come from. These meals contain rice, soy, dehydrated vegetables, and a flavoring mix including 21 essential vitamins and minerals.
In order to host this event, we need help raising money to fund the materials. We are reaching out to UNCG and community partners in raising these funds. All of the money donated will go completely to Stop Hunger Now. This event provides students with a volunteer/service opportunity as well as a way to get connected to other students on campus. All the money we are raising is so that we can continue our annual service event to help provide meals to those who aren’t able to provide for themselves.
This event is a collaborative effort among all students who would like to volunteer their time and the purpose is for us to “Do Something Bigger Altogether (#DSBA). We want our students to contribute to an event that is bigger than they are.
We would love to post this link on your social media sites or even sending it out through a listserv. This is the link to donate so you are aware of what it looks like and if you would like to take over from here and send it out yourself that would be wonderful as well: Stop Hunger Now
Also, Here is the link to Stop Hunger Now’s website: http://www.stophungernow.org/ 
This event will occur on Friday November 21, 2014 and it will be in conjunction with “Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week,” hosted by the Office of Leadership and Service
Learning (OLSL).
