CCPC Transition Assistance Program
Thank you for volunteering! You will be providing 15 hearty sandwiches that must be dropped off at the TAP office on the lower level of CCPC between 8:30-8:45 a.m. on the day they are due OR prior to that time. The TAP offices are open on Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday mornings. If you'd like to make sandwiches but can't figure out a good way to deliver them, please contact me at 202-375-0897 or [email protected] and I will be happy to help you!
These sandwiches may be the only meal a client receives all day, so let's make sure they are hearty and stuffed with plenty of cheese and turkey!
Your shopping list should include:
- 1-2 loaves (30 slices) of substantial bread (but no poppy seeds or seeds that may resemble poppy seeds, please, because of concerns regarding drug tests!).
- 2 1/2 or 3 lbs. of turkey (no ham or other pork products, please, because many clients are Muslim and no beef - a surprisingly large number of clients do not eat beef).
- 30 slices of cheese, any type.
- sandwich baggies.
It works best if you layer: bread, cheese, turkey, cheese, bread. The sandwiches will be less soggy! Don't use mayonnaise or mustard - they will be provided separately. Please make all sandwiches of the same type. Each sandwich should be cut in half and placed in a sandwich bag.
Sandwiches need to be at the TAP office no later than 8:30-8:45 am on your day. From the church parking lot on Oliver Street, go in the double doors, turn to the right and knock on the Dutch door where the volunteers are setting up for the day.
Transition Assistance Program (TAP), a ministry of the Chevy Chase Presbyterian Church, helps people obtain identification documents (birth certificates and non-driver’s license IDs) needed for employment, short-term transportation assistance to verified new jobs, referrals, clothing, and food. TAP serves people from the entire Washington metropolitan area, with most clients traveling for hours to get to CCPC. Last year, 1,159 people received assistance. Thank you for helping them by providing much-appreciated food.
