ONE Project is hosting its annual Hunger Project on Saturday, July 27. The event is occurring at Robbinsville High School from 9am to 1pm.
ONE Project is a local faith and community coalition organized to efficiently and effectively address social needs through education and volunteerism. It was founded in 2014, by Amman Seehra and Dan Greco, over a game of basketball. Both were passionate about community service and wanted to create an organization that brought people of different faiths and backgrounds together for the good of the community.
The organization hosts a number of projects from community education programs on important topics like race and religion to assembling hygiene kits for teenagers in drug recovery.
“We don’t want our projects to be pure fundraising,” said Amman Seehra. “We want our volunteers to get more of a hands-on experience when it comes to serving the community.”
For this year’s Hunger Project, ONE Project has big goals. They are expecting about 2000 volunteers and looking to raise enough money for 150,000 meals. The meals are 28 cents a piece and consist of a lentil meal casserole developed by nutritionists. They will be donated and distributed by Mercer Street Friends Food Bank and other partners in the State.
