WEST HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) — Students at Notre Dame High School packed thousands of meals for the Haiti Hunger Relief Fund on Tuesday.
Notre Dame students met with three local rotary clubs and Halsey Associates to pack 40,000 meals for the Haiti Hunger Relief fund.
The event is held in support of a New Haven community service group, which formed back in 2012.
Over 150 volunteers came out to take part in one of the largest meal packing events Halsey has organized for Harvest Pack.
The meals will help feed the people of Haiti, who are still suffering from the aftermath of Hurricane Matthew. Most of the food will be shipped to St. Therese School in Haiti, run by a community of Haitian Catholic brothers.
The remainder of the meals will be donated to the Christian Community Action Agency and other local agencies in New Haven.
Notre Dame also held a dress down day for its students on Tuesday to raise money for their Holy Cross Brothers Mission in Haiti.
