Langley Pyramid Helps Stop Hunger Now

For the fourth year in a row, Langley pyramid schools are raising money for the Stop Hunger Now. This year the goal is to raise $25,000, which is enough money to purchase 100,000 meals for school age children. To contribute to this fundraising effort, visit Stop Hunger Now at http://events.stophungernow.org/LangleyPyramid2015. Each 25¢ raised = 1 meal. All proceeds will be used to purchase meals which the community will then pack on Saturday, Feb. 7, 2015 from 8:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. at Colvin Run Elementary. Approximately 450 volunteers (150 people per session) are scheduled to pack meals that day.

The Langley pyramid students donated over $10,000 which will purchase over 40,000 meals. Anyone interested to donate online towards the collective goal of 100,000 meals is encouraged to do so. Stop Hunger Now will use the money raised to purchase the meals for the event.
