Volunteers sought for 'Stop Hunger Now' event in North Carolina – July 19

An Elon alumnus is helping to recruit volunteers for a meal-packaging program on July 19, 2014, in Research Triangle Park that will benefit communities in Nicaragua.

An Elon University alumnus is recruiting volunteers for a “Stop Hunger Now” meal-packaging event in North Carolina’s capital region that promises to send 125,000 meals to impoverished communities in Nicaragua.

Darron Stover ’93 G’95, program manager for Stop Hunger Now-Raleigh, is working with the logistics company Kuehne & Nagel to package and ship meals to the Latin American nation.

There is no financial requirement to volunteer. Kuehne & Nagel has pledged to fully fund the effort but the company does not have enough employee volunteers to package that number of meals.

Stover is one of several people attempting to recruit an additional 300 volunteers to work one of two shifts on Saturday, July 19, at the company’s facility in Research Triangle Park: one from 10 a.m. – 12 p.m., the other from 1-3 p.m.
