Stop Hunger!

Dear West Valley parents,
 
         This year at WVMS, our student council is taking on one of the biggest projects that we have ever attempted, but we will not be able to accomplish this feat without the help and support of our wolf pack! Please continue reading to find out about this project!
 
Stop Hunger Now is a company that is working to end world hunger in our lifetime. They work towards accomplishing this goal by having food packaging events where volunteers work to package bags filled with rice, vegetables, and spices that will be sent oversees. The meals will go to countries where people do not always get regular meals.
 
         Our student council took part in one of these events at SASC (a convention for all student council in the southern part of the U.S.). The feeling of knowing how many people we had fed in just the time span of 1 hour was amazing!
 
         We are holding one of these food packaging events at West Valley Middle School. To do this, we need to raise $5,000 to cover the cost of materials. If we raise $5,000, we can package 17,000 meals! To put this in perspective: we raise $5,000, 150 volunteers come to package meals, and then 17,000 people (who do not always get to eat) will have a hot meal!
 
         The packaging event will be on April 30th from 9:00 to 12:00 in the WVMS gymnasium and cafeteria. Anyone is welcome to volunteer to help package meals! We want this is be a community wide event so feel free to invite family members, friends, or co-workers to help package the meals!
 
         We will be collecting donations until April and we will also have one more fundraiser before then. Our event link on the Stop Hunger Now website is: http://events.stophungernow.org/westvalleymiddle. There you can give donations via credit/debit card or register to volunteer at the food packaging event.
 
         Kristy Dean is the leader of the Stop Hunger Now committee and will be delighted to answer any questions or provide any information that you might need! Feel free to contact her at kristy.dean@charter.net or (865) 382 – 9982.
 
Thank you so much for your continuous support,
 
WVMS Student Council
