MERCY MEALS

Community Pack for Haiti

Saturday, November 19

In early October, Hurricane Matthew devastated parts of Haiti, killing hundreds and leaving thousands homeless with no food and clean water. In response to this great need, Orphan Grain Train of Norfolk has been sending meals and medical supplies to help. They are in need of more meals and in response, Mercy Meals of Yankton will be hosting a community packing event on Saturday, November 19.

We will pack in 4 shifts at 9:00am, 11:00am, 1:00pm and 3:00pm. Packing will be at the Mercy Meals location at Calvary Baptist Church, 2407 Broadway.

To make sure we have space for you, your family, or a group you would      like      to      put      together,      please      e-mail      us    at

 info@mercymealsyankton.org or call 605-260-0293 to let us know what shift you would like to participate in.

Freewill offerings will be accepted to help defer some of the cost for the shipping and dry product that will be packed.
