The Jonas Brothers’ Change For the Children Foundation recently awarded a $70,000 grant to Convoy of Hope for its global children’s feeding initiatives.
“Like us, the Jonas Brothers want to fight hunger by making sure impoverished children have nutritious food to eat each day,” said Hal Donaldson, president of Convoy of Hope, speaking in a news release.
He added, “We are very thankful for their generosity and for linking arms with us.”
Each school day, Convoy of Hope feeds nearly 35,000 children a nutritious meal in impoverished countries such as Haiti where the organization has expanded its feeding program since the earthquake last year.
Providing children with nutritious meals is the first step in Convoy of Hope’s comprehensive approach in fighting hunger. The organization also helps by providing clean water, healthy living environments, agriculture training and education.
“Our program areas work together to address the root of hunger, which is poverty,” says Donaldson. “Our goal is to lead children down the path to healthy, productive and self-sufficient lives. This grant will help in doing that.”
Convoy of Hope, founded in 1994, is a faith-based organization which has children’s feeding initiatives, community outreaches and responds to disasters.
