THIS SATURDAY - Sandwich Making for Warm Nights March 27 The Justice League is starting up a new season of making lunches for guests of Warm Nights. We will begin on this Saturday, March 27th, and continue through the month of April. Once again we will meet on Saturday mornings from 9:30 am until 11:00 am to make 135 sandwiches. We will need 10 volunteers to work, wearing masks and practicing social distancing. We will also need donations of water bottles to go into the lunch bags. Here is the sign up genius link for Warm Nights Lunches so that you can volunteer. There are still some slots available for this Saturday! We look forward to seeing many friendly faces back at St. George’s working for others.
