Feed 1,000 Families

Minimize

We are feeding 1,000 families/refugees with your help!

 
 
Since the Syrian Uprising in March of 2011, many civilians fled to Jordan with nothing. Seeking shelter in a different country, many Syrians turned to Jordanian citizens and humanitarian aid for help. It has been four years and Syrian refugees, the vast majority being widows and orphans, have not been receiving the proper aid. As the Houston community, we should be doing our part in alleviating the suffering of our brothers and sisters.

Let us truly show that we have not forgotten about the Syrians. How can we sleep with our stomachs full, while our brothers and sisters go to bed hungry?

This summer, until September 1st, we have the opportunity to collect various food items to feed 1,000 families. Helping Hand for Relief and Development in partnership with Palestinian American Cultural Center plans on sending this food container to Jordan with YOUR help. The container will primarily benefit Syrian refugees, with a portion going to Palestinian Refugees and needy Jordanians living in harsh conditions.

Food items needed:
1. 20 lb Great Value Long Grain Enriched Rice
2. 10 lb Golden Medal All Purpose Flour
3. 1 Gallon Great Value Vegetable Oil
4. 8 lb Great Value Pinto Beans (DRY not canned)
5. 10 lb Great Value Pure Sugar

*ALL FOOD ITEMS MUST BE PURCHASED AT WALMART. IT IS IMPORTANT THAT THE FOOD ITEMS ARE CONSISTENT WITH THE ABOVE DESCRIPTIONS, OR THEY WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED. ALSO, FOOD ITEMS MUST NOT EXPIRE WITHIN THE NEXT 10 MONTHS.
