We always have a great crew help us out when we distribute the lunches!
Our March community service project is on Sunday, March 23! We’re is once again making lunches and health kits and distributing them to our homeless friends staying along The Fallsway in Baltimore. As usual, we need many supplies!
Bread – 8 loaves (136 slices)
Mayonnaise – 2 medium jars
Tuna – 6 big cans
Peanut butter – 2 medium jars
Jelly – 3 medium jars
Fruit – 68 pieces
Water – 150 bottles
Granola bars – 68 bars
Brown paper lunch bags – 68
Ziploc sandwich baggies – 68
Napkins – 68
We always end up making more than 68 sack lunches because there’s extra, but that’s just the number we shoot for as a minimum. We make PB&J sandwiches and tuna sandwiches, but if you want to bring lunch meat and cheese, just email!
Here’s the page where you can sign-up to bring certain items: http://vols.pt/FxEAye
We’ll also be gathering supplies to make health/survival kits, if you’d like to donate some of those items. This is what Health Care for the Homeless suggests for the kits:
Socks, toothbrush, toothpaste, bar soap in a plastic bag, wet wipes,hand sanitizer, comb, poncho, (in winter: hat, gloves, scarf)
We’ll be making the sandwiches and kits from 11:30am into the church service that day. Then after church we’ll carpool down to The Fallsway to meet in front of HCH to hand out everything.
Please donate even if you can’t come to church that day, we can arrange to pick up supplies – just email us. See you Sunday!
