[Do GOOD] Help make and give out sandwiches

My friend Alice is doing a homeless sandwich drive on sunday 21st 2013. I think this would be a great opportunity for ESV to make a positive difference in our community.

 

==================

Hi All,

Happy Summer! Please join this summer homeless outreach to share food and love with the marginalized in our city.
July 21, Sun
1pm
Tenth Ave Church (W 10th & Ontario), Lower East Hall


Plan Overview
Make sandwiches and pack food bags together.
Outreach to our street friends in Downtown Eastside in small group with the food bags, conversations and loving spirit.

What to Bring?
Your donations of nutritious ingredients for sandwiches (bread, tuna, ham & cheese etc. *pls bring proportionate fillings v.s bread), Bakeries, Fruits, Nuts, Juice, Granola bars, etc.

Who?
Please invite your friends and family. We welcome everyone from any faith background and all ages.


Why?
To bless and be blessed. Give and you'll be given much. Many participants in the past testified that they were more blessed than they blessed. It was an eye opener for many. And it's A LOT OF FUN to meet people and make sandwiches together!


Can't be there?
You can still participate by dropping off your donation at the event. Also, by praying for the marginalized and spending time with them when they come cross your path.


What's It Like?

    It was my first time to attend this kind of special event. It was a good oppoturnity for me to know a bit better about those homeless people. Actually, most of them are very kind and friendly...Many thanks ED for organizing this meaningful event. Good job!!!

      Glad you had a great time, Anna. It was definitely an eye opener for many of us. Its great to see how you had some conversations with some people there. Most people on the street are human beings like us and deserve respect and have stories to share. Its unfortunate a few bad apples ruin their reputation.

    I would like to help but after seing what are being given i can't participate, it would be agains my conscince. You basically are feeding them poison for the body - peanutbutter and gel - very processed and very high sugar content. If you really care and want to help them give them few fruits (alive food) than junk.
