Volunteers from the community will gather Saturday, June 2 at the open air gymnasium at Harmon Field to package food for shipment to hungry school children in Haiti.
The first shift will pack food from 8:30-10:30 a.m., and the second shift will work from 10:45 a.m. – 12:45 p.m. Anyone who would like to join in the effort is welcome.
Area churches, the Congregational Church, Holy Cross Episcopal, Tryon First Baptist, Tryon Presbyterian, Trinity Lutheran, and many individuals from the community provided funds to purchase and pack 40,000 meals for shipment to Haiti. These joined the Kiwanis Club and the sponsoring Rotary Club of Tryon in making this a community event.
