COMMUNITY VOLUNTEER CO-OP FEEDS HUNGRY

Jordan Richard (left) of the Litchfield-Morris Rotary Club, Sue Holway of the Thomaston Rotary Club and volunteer Dan Johnson packaged meals for Harvest Pack, a humanitarian hunger relief nonprofit organization, on Saturday, May 11. In a joint effort between the Thomaston and Litchfield-Morris Rotary clubs and the Interact students from Thomaston High School, the three organizations raised funds to package meals to be sent to Haiti and North Carolina to feed those in need. 

Groups were formed into teams of eight to package meals that were then sealed and shipped. Each package feeds six persons and requires water only to make. In total, the group raised $8,000 and packaged 38,000 meals. They are not done yet with another 37,000 meals to be made by Thursday, June 13.
