Together we make 100 sandwiches and bagged meals. They go out that evening directly into the hands of folks in need on our city streets through a Salvation Army program called Grate Patrol which delivers the food. We've been participating for over 20 years and have a good assembly line practice - new folks always needed and welcome!
Coming soon . . . We're working on connecting with DC Books to Prisons, which matches inmates with great reading. Volunteers are needed, and we may host a training soon.
Pre-Thanksgiving Dinner - the Wednesday before Thanskgiving, we offer a community meal for anyone - hungry, lonely, or celebrating our community. Turkey, ham, and all the fixings, a wonderful community event. Volunteers welcome, and everyone sits and eats together.
