Local youth, young adults plan fundraiser for hurricane relief

A group of 30 local children and young adults have teamed up to put together a fundraiser for victims of Hurricane Harvey and Irma.

Tagged “Texas Har-V-Q,” the take-home dinner fundraiser offers meals for preorder. Meals will cost $15 per meal or $50 for four meals. All proceeds will go to the American Red Cross for Harvey and Irma relief, and all of the food and materials for the fundraiser have been donated by local businesses and organizations.

The group has added a spin on the fundraiser to help the local impoverished community. If they so choose, participants can have their meals delivered to a local food kitchen rather than having the meal for themselves.

This is the group’s second hurricane relief fundraiser; they previously raised $20,000 for Hurricane Sandy victims through a bagel breakfast.

Pre-orders can be sent to: harvqkids@gmail.com. Participants can pick up their meals at Kings Bend Park in Pittsford on Sept. 18.
