The Class of 2024 took part in a Feed Haiti Packathon on Thursday, April 1, where they assembled packets of rice, beans, and vitamins to be shipped to Milot, Haiti. The meals will help the neediest people in this remote, northern region of Haiti, where much of the population is facing extreme food insecurity and famine. CRUDEM, the organization running the event, oversees Hôpital Sacré Coeur, the largest private hospital in Milot. Due to the pandemic, international aid has been severely limited, so CRUDEM seeks to create one million meals in 2021. The packathon at St. Sebastian's was the first of the Feed Haiti Packathon events put on by the organization. The enthusiastic group of 9th graders worked together to assemble 30,000 servings in one afternoon!
Special thanks to Danny Gillis '24 and his family for bringing this project to St. Sebastian's. Thank you as well to the maintenance staff for setting up the assembly stations in the gym. Great job, Class of 2024!
