More than 275,000 meals packaged by volunteers with DeBartolo Development have arrived in Haiti. So far, three schools, three churches and one orphanage in four different communities have received the healthy meals.
The city of Pignon was overcome with excitement as word began to spread that the meals had arrived. “Within minutes, I had people from all over the city at my doorstep,” says Nicolas Victorin, mayor of Pignon. “You can see the hunger in their eyes. It was a blessing to be able to give to so many people who are in such great need.”
The DeBartolo Helps Haiti Project brought together hundreds of volunteers to help assemble healthy meals for hungry people in the island nation, which was ravaged by Hurricane Matthew.
Debartolo hosted the special Hunger Project back in December and invited Tampa residents to dedicate their day to helping hurricane survivors.
“I really value the partnership that we have with DeBartolo,” says Dave Green, CEO of FCE. “They take corporate social responsibility to the next level. It’s inspiring to see an organization like this helping to make an impact on a global scale.”
Together, DeBartolo Development and FCE are working toward a hunger-free world.
