Sultry summer mornings, rain, snow, even during the ice storm of 2003, Sandwich Ministry thrives every Sunday morning. Sunday mornings, when many area relief agencies are closed and the homeless are left with nowhere to find food, we create and distribute sandwiches to those in need. A group of volunteers gathers at 8:30 in the church kitchen to prepare 120 sack lunches (2 ham and cheese sandwiches, a juice box, and fruit). It’s not a turkey dinner, but it’s something our neighbors count on every single week. Then at 9:10, a delivery crew gathers all of the coolers of sack lunches, cool lemonade (soup during winter), and coffee and distributes the free food at the lower level parking lot behind Rupp Arena (NEW LOCATION starting OCT 8) at 9:30. If you are interested in volunteering on Sunday mornings, please contact the church office (255-1074).
SANDWICH MINISTRY SCHEDULE
December 3 thru March 25, 2018
Dear Friends of Maxwell Street Presbyterian Church,
Here is your new Sandwich Ministry schedule. Please look it over and if you know you will not be able to work on a Sunday you have been assigned either “reply to all” in response to this email asking for a sub or to switch dates, or let me know. My email
is Jkyle10353@aol.com or call my home phone, 223-9020, especially if it is a last minute change.
PLEAST NOTE: If you both make and deliver sandwiches, there may be Sundays when you will do both, and other Sundays when you will only make or only deliver.
Also, remember when a family is scheduled to work it is expected that at least two people from a family are asked work.
Start making sandwiches at 8:30. A letter of instructions will be with bread and bananas to tell you how many sandwiches to make as that varies with the seasons. Lately we have had a decline in numbers and as a result I have reduced the number of bags we prepare.
Those delivering sandwiches should arrive at 9:15 and depart as soon as all the bags are filled. When you arrive at the Rupp Arena parking lot, back up your vehicles to the sidewalk and set up the tables on the sidewalk with the chests of sandwich bags, etc. between you and the vehicles. This provides more security in handing out the food and drinks. After everyone goes through the line once, wait for possible late arrivals before handing out seconds.
Everyone should also remember to clean up the kitchen after making the sandwiches as well as washing out the drink and soup containers after returning to the church.
