BALTIMORE (WJZ) — The Orioles will partner with Catholic Relief Services (CRS) Helping Hands, a volunteer meal-packaging program, to host the 10,000 Meal Challenge – a fundraising effort aimed at sending 10,000 meals to the women and children of Burkina Faso, West Africa.
The Orioles and CRS Helping Hands will host a meal-packaging event at Oriole Park at Camden Yards on Saturday, August 20, from 10:15 a.m. to noon in which teams who reach certain fundraising levels will be invited to participate along with former Orioles players and Orioles staff.
For every 50 cents raised, CRS Helping Hands can provide one meal to our under-fed global neighbors and fund projects that help families support themselves.
Fundraising teams that raise $500 (to fund at least 1,000 meals) will receive five tickets to the August 20 meal-packaging event, as well as 10 tickets to the Orioles game against the Toronto Blue Jays on August 31, at 7:05 p.m.
