Hopewell Donates to Food For The Poor

Supplies to Provide Haiti Relief

Coconut Creek, FL (September 18, 2008) - Hopewell Missionary Baptist Church of Pompano Beach has donated large quantities of relief supplies to Food For The Poor.  Two full truckloads of supplies, consisting of food, water and clothing were contributed and will be used to assist the victims of the four storms that have devastated Haiti.

“The members of Hopewell were outstanding in their generosity,” said Angel Aloma, Executive Director of Food For The Poor.  “We cannot express enough gratitude for the outpouring of support that the entire South Florida community has shown for the people of Haiti.”

Food For The Poor currently feeds millions of destitute children and their families in Haiti.  Through its expansive networks of island-wide distribution hubs, Food For The Poor supports thousands of partners feeding the poorest of the poor.  Food For the Poor also maintains an extensive house-building program, a major tree restoration effort and sustainability projects that provide employment in Haiti.

Food For The Poor, the second-largest international relief and development organization in the nation and the No.1 charity in Florida, does much more than feed millions of hungry poor in 16 countries of the Caribbean and Latin America.  Since 1982, we have provided clean water, medicines, educational materials, homes, support for orphans and the aged, skills training and emergency relief, with more than 96% of all donations going directly to programs that help the poor.  For additional information, please visit the Web site www.foodforthepoor.org.
