Description

The Tuesday Sandwich Makers is a project to help the Community Day Center in Waltham (CDCW) continue to serve a healthy lunch to their clients.  CDCW is the only drop-in day program for unhoused individuals in the Metrowest, served a hot sit-down lunch each weekday to their clients. But now they have adjusted to offering grab-and-go lunches.

Instructions

We need volunteers to make 40 sandwiches for the CDCW's Tuesday lunch program. We ask that you/your group commit to making at least 20 sandwiches, but you can do all 40 as well. This is a perfect project for a youth group, teams of families, a class or just a group of friends wanting to pitch in. You can do it once, several times or on an ongoing basis.
