For a good cause

 

Dave Faries

On Sunday some 200 volunteers--mostly members of St. Patrick's Catholic Church--packaged 20,000 meals to be distributed to needy people in Africa through the organization Stop Hunger Now. The volunteers filled containers with rice, beans and other necessities, weighed and boxed the meals before loading everything onto a truck. The church had originally planed to package 10,000 meals, but the outpouring of financial and voluntary support was so great they were able to double the number. Baylee DeLaurier of Stop Hunger Now supervised the event. Top right: Jon Smith shows his strength, hoisting a bag of rice. Left: Andrew Hurt assists his son, Conner, filling containers.
