'Love In a Ziplock Bag'
With the shut down, it has become increasingly difficult for unhoused folks to have access to food at the usual places. New partnerships need to be formed and last week the
Welcome Church, Grace Lutheran in Hatfield and the
people of St. John's in Ambler combined to deliver 217 PB and J sandwiches and three flats of snack bags to Project Home on Fairmount in Philly. They will distribute the food to those who need it.
"Love comes in many forms and sometimes it comes in a ziplock bag," says Lou Farrell, who organized the drive. And you can help. Here's how it works:
We will leave a cooler with ice outside of Grace all day on Tuesday.
You make peanut butter and jelly sandwiches on white bread and put them in ZIPLOC bags. Use cheap white bread with gobs of PB and J. A loaf will get you nine sandwiches. Please consider buying two loaves.
Make the kind of sandwiches that your Mom used to yell at you about. Load them up. We want to fill bellies.
Leave your donation in the labeled cooler sometime between 8:00 am and 8:00 pm on Tuesday. Please email
to let him know how many sandwiches that you made and if the cooler needs to be emptied.
Lou will drop everything off on Wednesday morning.
They are also in need of someone to loan/donate a large cooler.
