|FRANCES HALE: HEIFER INTERNATIONAL |
Frances Hale is Heifer International’s dynamic Community Engagement Coordinator. She will be here to help us kick-off our yearly volunteer drive to staff the Heifer
International booth at the Orange County Fair in Costa Mesa July 14th through August 13th.
Heifer International's mission is to work with communities to end world hunger and poverty and to care for the Earth. They empower families to turn hunger and poverty into hope and prosperity – but their approach is more than just giving a handout. Heifer links communities and helps bring sustainable agriculture and commerce to areas with a long history of poverty. Heifers animals provide partners with both food and reliable income, as agricultural products such as milk, eggs and honey can be traded or sold at market. When many families gain this new sustainable income, it brings new opportunities for building schools, creating agricultural cooperatives, forming community savings and funding small businesses.
