Can you help make 150 "to-go" brown bag lunches to be delivered March 21, 2021? Deliver your brown bags to the circle driveway outside our church starting at 10:00 am, but no later than 10:45 am, and one volunteer will deliver the lunches to Boston. We also need someone to purchase 100 water bottles and cups and deliver them at the same time.
common cathedral is a congregation of (mostly) un-housed parishioners and worship service takes place every Sunday at Brewer Fountain on Boston Common. We will provide a bag lunch for the participants. However, we will not be able to participate in worship or interact with the congregants as we have in the past, due to pandemic restrictions. This is sad, as the mission is to build relationships between us, but it is necessary. The clergy who conduct the worship service and actively minister to the parish are extremely grateful to us for providing lunch.
Please prepare 25 sandwiches, wrapped or in ziploc baggie. Each brown lunch sack should have the sandwich and two snacks, for example a bag of chips and a banana, or a bag of nuts and a bag of popcorn. Try to choose soft snacks, like banana or goldfish crackers, over hard snacks, like apples, due to differences in dental situations. Please do take good precautions when preparing to-go lunch bags at home: sanitize surfaces, wash hands often and consider wearing gloves. You may use any kind of bread and your choice of snacks to include, no beverage (there is a separate distribution of beverages). Please write on the outside of the bag what kind of sandwich is inside. Paper napkin might be nice, too, and a smiley face or a message like "Jesus loves you!" is always appreciated. Past volunteers suggest that you need 2.5 to 3 pounds of meat and 3 loaves of bread for 25 sandwiches.
St. Andrew's has a budget for this ministry so please send your receipts to our church financial secretary for reimbursement. Thank you SO MUCH!
Future dates are April 18, May 16 and June 13.
