Peanut Butter, Simple, Yet Powerful!
Friends, here is a request from my friends in Haiti: GVCM is conducting a peanut butter drive with the goal of filling a 40 foot container that will be shipped to Haiti for its orphanage and school children. The intent of the organization is to ensure that all children are receiving enough protein in their daily diets. They have noticed many children are attending school who appear to be malnourished. The ministry has decided that one way to address this concern is providing peanut butter sandwiches.
The school in Haiti (Thomassique) has about 1800 students and the country is predicting a state of emergency this year due to the drought, that will result in a lack of food production, more malnutrition, and limited resources for children to attend school.
The Haitian government has already agreed to allow the ministry to bring the container duty free! Please support this effort by donating jars of peanut butter. The peanut butter can be shipped to the Laparkan Warehouse in Miami at: Laparkan Express, 3775 NW 77th St., Miami, FL 33147. If you have any questions, feel free to contact Lona Sanchez at firstname.lastname@example.org or David Rowlands at 913-422-5907. If you prefer to give a financial gift, you can go to www.gvcm.org.
