Marshmallow Mondays


Extend Hope

Happy Monday, friends! We hope you all had a great weekend. Part of ours was spent serving at our church on Saturday afternoon, where we helped pack ONE MILLION meals for Haiti – enough to help feed 3,500 kids for an entire year.

Over the course of 24 hours, 6,500 volunteers came together to extend hope through meal packing. With 80’s music blaring, motivating announcements, enthusiastic table captains, and eager, compassionate volunteers, this was a really awesome experience.

We were minus one since Rydan had lacrosse practice, but our Lily lady was ready to work extra hard to make up for her brother’s absence.

Her official job was to open up the meal bags so that they were ready to be filled with food. She was super focused the entire time, and as the youngest member at our team table, she did an awesome job of keeping everybody moving as quickly as possible.

Our table packed 20 boxes in just over an hour, contributing to the 110,000 meals that were packed in our afternoon session.
