KRAHLING VOLUNTEERS TO PACK MEALS FOR HUNGRY CHILDREN

District 4 Doña Ana County Commissioner Scott A. Krahling will be among the volunteers who gather April 10, 2010, to package 100,000 meals for hungry children in Haiti.

Krahling said he was approached by ROJO Apparel to get involved in the event, which is cosponsored by the Associated Students of New Mexico State University and Feed My Starving Children (FMSC).

Krahling said each meal will contain rice, soy, dehydrated vegetables, vitamins and minerals, at a cost of 17 cents each to produce. The packaged meals will then be shipped to Haiti.

ROJO Apparel is a charitable-based business with a mission of helping people who face extreme poverty. FMSC is a non-profit organization committed to ending hunger among children.

Hundreds of volunteers are expected to show up April 10 at Dickerson’s Auction Barn on West Picacho Avenue to take part in the all-day event.

“I am happy to be involved in any way to help the needy, especially children,” Krahling said. “I hope more people will join in this event, which will benefits so many children devastated by the earthquake in Haiti.”
