Help Needed: Sandwich Project

We are always in need of additional volunteers to assist with our character education project called "The Sandwich Project." We've been making 250 sandwiches a week for St. Francis Seraph Ministries in OTR since 1997!

3-4 volunteers are needed weekly on Thursdays to set-up and assist. Mr. Stern and Mr. Dejoy will be there when the students arrive. Your assistance would be needed from 10:50-11:45. The commitment is under an hour! If you are available and interested for any Thursday during the remainder of the year, please contact: Christy Banke at Thank you.

Small commitment. Big impact.
