Memorial Baptist volunteers pack 10,000 meals for Haiti

The math alone is uplifting: 60 church members times four hours equals 10,000 meals for Haiti.
As one of Memorial Baptist Church’s family mission projects, the church spent $2,500 for the ingredients to 10,000 ready-made meals. On Saturday, the volunteers used an assembly line to pack 1,667 bags, each containing six meals, of dry food for the still-suffering country of Haiti.
“It was really a hands-on thing,” said Kari Sullivan, the children’s ministry coordinator for the church. “The kids could see the boxes piling up, and they wrote notes over the boxes and we prayed over the food and we gave it to Global Compassion to get it there.”
