CommUNITY Comfort & Meals
January 13, 2024 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm ESTFree
Please join us to make bagged lunches with turkey and cheese sandwiches for the hungry! We will also be assembling no-sew fleece blankets and stuffing socks with goodies for local communities.
Please consider purchasing items for our meals event – there are plenty of ways to help!
This project engages individuals and families in a fun, hands on activity which involves little to no skill. Adults and children (ages 9+) can collectively combat blanket shortages at this event. Children ages 12+ can prepare a blanket on their own with minimal guidance. Children ages 9-11 can prepare a blanket with help from an adult. Although this is a great way to engage children to give back to the community, we will need an adequate number of adults to assist our youth volunteers. Each blanket will take ~1 hour to assemble in full. A $20 donation covers the expense of 1 blanket. **These blankets will be purchased in bulk by COMMUNITY SJP.**
