MOBILE, Ala. (WKRG) — Students at Cottage Hill Christian Academy spent the day packing 15,000 meals for students in schools and orphanages in Haiti.

The school partnered with Feed the Need to make this happen. Feed the Need is a “service-based fundraiser where instead of selling cheesecakes or cookie dough, our K2 through 12th grade students will come together to pack 15,000 meals to be sent to orphanages and schools around the world.”

CHCA administration said this event allows their students to be globally aware and mission-minded.
