Dear Colvin Run Elementary School families,
We want to encourage you to sign up to volunteer and donate for our annual Langley Pyramid Rise Against Hunger event! This is a wonderful Langley pyramid tradition, and we want to make sure our families can participate. We held our last Rise Against Hunger event in February 2023 with our meals going to Convoy of Hope, a School Feeding Program in the Philippines. This event was a huge success and provide a wonderful service learning opportunity for children and adults of all ages.
On Saturday, February 3, 2024, families in the Langley Pyramid are joining together again this year at Colvin Run Elementary School to help children in need. In partnership with Rise Against Hunger, the Langley pyramid elementary, middle, and high schools are coming together with a goal to prepare 75,000 meal packages for schools and orphanages around the world.
Donate and help raise money for the event:
Each student is encouraged to donate loose change or money that they earn and wish to donate to Rise Against Hunger. They will bring home a small box in which to collect this money. Students should bring in any money they would like to donate. Our school will collect money each morning January 8th-January 31st. Each meal costs only 46 cents to make. For just $15, you can donate over 32 meals; $30 will make over 65 meals and $100 will make nearly 220 meals. Our school goal is to raise $4,000 with 100% of our students participating in the event.
In order to reach our goal of 75,000 meals, the Langley Pyramid needs to raise $35,000 by January 31st If your company makes matching contributions, please consider having them join you in making a tax-deductible donation today at: Langley Pyramid Rise Against Hunger 2024 and help us Rise Against Hunger.

Enter "Quantity" as the number of volunteers attending. If for any reason you need to cancel, please cancel through the Sign-up Genius to make those slots available to other Colvin Run Elementary School families. Being a popular Langley pyramid event, please sign up as volunteer slots will fill up quickly. Children ages 4-12 must be accompanied by an adult.

About Rise Against Hunger
Rise Against Hunger is a 3-star rated organization that sends nutrient-rich, dehydrated meal packages to developing countries around the world. In those countries, the meal packages are delivered to families through the schools. In developing countries, children may not attend school to receive a formal education, so in part to this program, more children are being encouraged to attend school to receive a hot meal at school and additional meal packages for their families. As an additional benefit, more children are also receiving a formal education. Click here to learn more about Rise Against Hunger.
This is a great event for the whole family! Don't miss out. Please email [email protected] if you have any questions.
