As part of the district’s long-term commitment to the recovery effort in Haiti, New Generations plans their first hands-on project at the District Conference on Saturday, April 30. We will be partnering with Kids Against Hunger to pack highly nutritious meals which will be sent to Haiti.  Rotary clubs of District 6440 are encouraged to participate as well as support Interact Clubs and Youth Exchange by sponsoring one or more students. 


At the conference, Interactors and Youth Exchange students will be joining with Rotarians and Rotoractors in a program sponsored nationally by Kids Against Hunger, whereby they will be packing boxes of food destined for the earthquake-ravaged villages of Haiti. 


It is suggested that the students be funded by their sponsoring clubs and by Rotary clubs helping to raise funds through various fundraising projects, pledges, and by your club support!  Your Rotary club and the New Generations students can make a real difference in the lives of the people of Haiti.  This is a wonderful opportunity for fellowship, and the impact will be immeasurable.
