WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Coastal Christian High school believes that hope changes everything for children in Haiti.
Hope Changes Everything is a nonprofit organization that sends underprivileged children in Haiti to school with a nutritious meal every day.
Saturday, volunteers packed 75 thousand meals to send to Grand-Goâve, a commune in Haiti.
Founder, Renee Hunter is pleased with the turnout of volunteers and their accomplishments.
“By offering them an academic education, a spiritual education and nutrition we give them a chance to hope and we make them, the people in Haiti that can change their abject poverty into something else,” said Hunter.
The meals are being loaded onto a ship that will transport them to Port-Au-Prince, Haiti and be distributed by Coastal Christian’s missionaries.
