Mission: To provide 360 sandwiches each to the Men's’ Shelter of Charlotte and the Salvation Army Center of Hope every week.
Volunteer opportunities: Sandwich Makers instructions
Drivers pick up sandwiches every other month (so 6 times a year) at the church and drive to uptown men and women's shelters.
Time commitment of volunteers: Two hours every other month.
I will cherish the memories of making sandwiches for those less fortunate with my children. When it came to our month, we developed an assembly line based on whatever each child liked to do (one daughter did not like to touch the lunch meat!) and each took their task seriously. Sometimes I think we received more than we ever gave, and that is the ultimate lesson I wished to share with my girls!
