Gehlen Packs Meals for Honduras
(Le Mars) -- The Feed Just One Program assembled meals at Gehlen Catholic destined for Honduras on Friday. Dick Sievert is the coordinator of the event. He says Gehlen has been involved with the program for at least the past seven years. The program has now expanded beyond Le Mars and includes other Catholic schools within the diocese, as well as other Christian-based churches and organizations.
The local organization hopes to assemble 130,000 meals. Sievert says each meal consists of four main ingredients.
Sievert says Honduras is the second poorest nation in the western hempishere and that is why attention is focused on the Central American nation.
Gehlen Catholic Schools have partnered with Opportunities Unlimited to market Jumpy Monkey coffee, and many clients of Opportunities Unlimited will offer their assistance in creating the meals for the hungry in Honduras.
Sievert says they welcome anyone from the communtiy to volunteer and help with the meals. The shifts are for an hour and a half beginning at 8:30 a.m. andcontinuing until 5:30 p.m. For more information about the program you can contact the Gehlen Catholic Schools at 546-4181.
