After kicking off our “Give A Meal To Heal” campaign at the beginning of October, hundreds of FriarWorks supporters have come together to donate and take part in our National Sandwich Day celebration. Now we are setting our goal even higher by aiming to raise 1,200 sandwiches for the people that our Friars serve daily in Philadelphia, New York City, Hartford and Tampa. But time is running out!
Our Friars serve hundreds of sandwiches a day, 365 days a year at our soup kitchens and breadlines along the East Coast. Could you imagine your whole life depended on a diet of sliced cheese, deli meat and white bread? For many people that is a reality!
For just $3.00 you can provide someone in need with what might be their only meal of the day. Many of these people are homeless, disabled, veterans or just struggling to make ends meet, and they depend on these sandwiches to survive.
Your most generous donation will enable us to continue feeding these men women, men and children long after National Sandwich Day.
