refugee child

We have all heard about the millions of refugees in Syria. We have a unique opportunity to help provide food to refugee camps in Syria.  KAH headquarters has arranged with Friend Ships (http://www.friendships.org) to get much needed meals to those in need.

On Saturday April 22 KAH Bay Area is hosting a FREE packing event to pack 100,000 meals for Syria refugees.  This event is limited to volunteers that have experience packing at a previous event and are over 15 years old.  No donations are required to help pack, however we will gladly accept any donation as the cost to pack 100,000 meals is $20,000.

We will have 5 packing sessions (10-11:30, 11:30-1:00, 1:00-2:30, 2:30-4:00 and 4:00-5:30)  To sign up to help pack 100,000 meals Click Here.  We will need lots of help to pack 100,000 meals in one day, so please consider helping at one or more sessions.
