More than 800 students, staff, and community volunteers gathered at The Academy @ Shawnee on Monday, Dec 15th and packaged 105,780 fortified meals. The meals will bring nourishment and hope to hungry children and families in Haiti, Liberia, and Guatemala.
The project also provided an opportunity for student volunteers to assist their own families. Each participant received a basket filled with food items and a $20 ValuMarket grocery card.
THANK YOU to the many partners that helped make this project a success, including New Breed Church, Lift A Life Foundation, Christ Church United Methodist, and ValuMarket.

A newly formed "Compassion Coalition" is providing a container of emergency aid in response to the West Africa Ebola crisis. The coalition is organized with the help of the Liberian Community of Kentucky and Southern Indiana and the Concerned Mothers of Liberia. The group is partnering with three local nonprofits: Kids Against Hunger-Louisville, Supplies Over Seas, and Water With Blessings to send medical supplies, high-protein meals, and water purifiers. Your donation will provide essential supplies to help address the basic needs of those suffering from the impact of the Ebola crisis.
