KAH-West Metro was contacted by the CEO of The Raining Season, an organization which supports an orphanage, The Covering, in Sierra Leone Africa. They wanted to receive 40 pallets of food to help the Ebola victims in Sierra Leone. West Metro was happy to supply nine of these pallets. The food was transferred to a trailer towed by volunteers from Omaha, Nebraska. The volunteers transported the food to Tennessee where our pallets were loaded onto a container with the other pallets to be shipped to Sierra Leone.
Our Lady of the Lake
While many students saw January 19th as a day off, the 85 students from Our Lady of the Lake Catholic School used the time in a very different way. They spent two hours packing meals to begin a day filled with service projects. Although the school has had a day of service on Martin Luther King Jr. Day for several years, this was the first time they packed with Kids Against Hunger. However, this did not stop the students, ranging from kindergarteners to eighth-graders, from ending a two-hour packing rush with a total of 17,280 meals made, which equaled two-and-a-half pallets full of boxes. Good job, packers!
