Several weeks ago our family did a great project together!
We made bagged lunches for our community homeless shelter.
We signed up through our church, and it was a great experience!
On average, the homeless shelter serves 30 people per night.....
Because of the cold weather, the number had risen to 70!
So here's what we did - it was easy, and we can't wait to do it again:
First of all, we gathered almost everything together in one area -
A typical lunch was a dated brown bag containing:
*a simple sandwich (I used white bread and only turkey due to possible allergies)
*a piece of fruit (I used a selection of medium sized apples)
*a bag of chips (again, I purchased a selection)
*a bag of cookies (we bagged our own Chips Ahoy - 4 per snack baggie)
AND we added a bottle of water for a drink, separate from the lunch bag
As soon as everything was set up, it went REALLY fast!
We arranged everything ASSEMBLY LINE STYLE!
And with my husband and boys helping, those lunches were done in NO time!
Dated lunch bags ready for apples & chips & napkins
MORE lunch bags ready for the goods :)
GO, GUYS - GO!
They worked so fast it was hard to get pics!
We decided to fold & staple the bags so there were no spills -
here are some of the finished bags ready to load in the car and deliver!
My Daniel and I - he helped me do all the shopping.....
I couldn't have done it without him and my other guys :)
Thank you, family! Let's do it again soon!
Hey peeps - if we can do it, you can do it!
Contact your local shelter or other worthy local cause, and find out what you can do!
