Bona Alumna Runs with BonaResponds for Haiti

Bona Alumna Runs with BonaResponds for Haiti:
"St. Bonaventure University alumna Carrie Jackling knows the importance of community service. BonaResponds played a large role in her Bonaventure career and it continues today. Jackling is the leading force behind the Haiti Relief 5K Run & Walk, which will take place April 10 at 9:30 a.m. at Delaware Park in Buffalo.

Jackling partnered with BonaResponds to raise money for its Food For Haiti Now campaign. All the proceeds from the Run & Walk will be given to BonaResponds for the drive. Food For Haiti Now is a program that provides meals to the people of Haiti.

“A meal costs 17 cents through Food For Haiti Now,” Jackling said. “Our goal is to raise $17,000, which would mean 100,000 meals for the people of Haiti.”

Jackling wants to make sure that everyone understands that Haiti still needs help even after all the initial relief efforts after the earthquake."
