Sandwich Run for the Homeless/Under-hous­ed

  • This location is shown only to members

  • A wise person once said... "you receive that which what you give."... actually I just made that up... but it sounds like something a wise person might say. With that in mind, lets give something back and break out the PB and J and make some sandwiches for those less fortunate.

    The idea is that while giving a sandwich doesn't really make that big a difference to people who are homeless or under-housed, what does make a difference is having some people to acknowledge and have a friendly conversation with.

    We'll 'Meet-up' at Loblaws at the Church and Cartlon Entrance with sandwiches in hand and take a stroll through the inner city ending up at Nathan Philips Square. Along the way lets listen to the stories of people who don't usually get to tell their stories.

    On the menu is 

    - Peanut butter and Jam - Or - Baloney and cheese 

    - A Piece of fruit - or - granola bar 

    - A juice box - or - bottle of water

    - Also Socks can be a big help to people too

    Please pre-prepare 10 paper bags of this and bring it to the meeting location, I'll give you guys a briefing and some things to remember while we go on our sandwich run

    Afterwards we'll debrief over coffee or drinks depending how people feel! 

    See you there
