Rise Against Hunger Information-link fixed

Dear Colvin Run Elementary School families, 

We wanted to encourage you to sign up to volunteer and donate for our annual Langley Pyramid Rise Against Hunger event held at Colvin Run Elementary School! This is a wonderful Langley pyramid tradition, and we want to make sure our families can participate. As many of you remember, we held our last Rise Against Hunger event in February 2020. This event was a huge success and provide a wonderful service learning opportunity for children and adults of all ages.  

On Saturday, February 4, 2023, families in the Langley Pyramid are joining together again this year to help children in need. In partnership with Rise Against Hunger, the Langley pyramid elementary, middle, and high schools are coming together with a goal to prepare 83,000 meal packages for schools and orphanages around the world. 

Donate and help raise money for the event

Each student is encouraged to donate loose change or money that they earn and wish to donate to Rise Against Hunger. On Friday before break, each child brought home a small box in which to collect this money over the holiday break and should bring in any money they would like to donate when we return in January 2023. Each school will collect money January 3rd-January 20th. 

Each meal costs only 42 cents to make. For just $15, you can donate over 35 meals; $30 will make over 70 meals and $100 will make nearly 280 meals. Families may want to make an End of Year tax deductible donation. You may make your tax-deductible donation today at: http://events.riseagainsthunger.org/LangleyPyramid2023

In order to reach our goal of 83,000 meals, the Langley Pyramid needs to raise $35,000 by January 27th.  If your company makes matching contributions, please consider having them join you in making a tax-deductible donation today at: http://events.riseagainsthunger.org/LangleyPyramid2023  and help us Rise Against Hunger.  

Volunteer for the event: (Sign up opens January 3rd!!!) 

On Tuesday, January 3rd, we will send out a Sign-up Genius for volunteers to register for the event and pick a time slot in which to volunteer.  Enter "Quantity" as the number of volunteers attending.  If for any reason you need to cancel, please cancel through the Sign-up Genius to make those slots available to other Cooper Middle School families. Being a popular Langley pyramid event, please sign up as volunteer slots will fill up quickly.  Children ages 4-12 must be accompanied by an adult. On the day of the event, volunteers package meals based on the amount of money raised, so it is recommended that if you wish to volunteer for the event, please make a monetary donation.    

About Rise Against Hunger 

Rise Against Hunger is a 4-star rated organization that sends nutrient-rich, dehydrated meal packages to developing countries around the world.  In those countries, the meal packages are delivered to families through the schools.  In developing countries, children may not attend school to receive a formal education, so in part to this program, more children are being encouraged to attend school to receive a hot meal at school and additional meal packages for their families.  As an additional benefit, more children are also receiving a formal education.

This is a great event for the whole family! Don't miss out.  Please email LangleySHN@gmail.com if you have any questions.
