Feed Hungry Kids in Honor of Zak

$4,022 of $14,500 goal

Raised by 41 people in 41 months
Zak Husein, a friend and fellow student at the University of Akron, was killed by a robber while working at his family's pizza shop last month. He was known for his generosity and selflessness and his friends, family, and campus community are deeply saddened to lose such a great man. In Zak's honor we wish to host a community meal packaging event that will bring everyone together to continue his legacy and package 50,000 meals to be distributed to kids in need around the world. Every $29 will provide enough for 100 meals and 100 resulting smiles to be donated in Zak's name. The funds will go directly to the nonprofit StopHungerNow whom will provide the food and material for it be packaged and will distribute the meals to those that need them.
Zak's family, friends, and community thank you for helping to bring positivity through our difficult time.

Every dollar helps.

Thank you greatly.
