Sandwich Making for Warm Nights The Justice League will be starting up a new season of making lunches for guests of Warm Nights. We will begin on 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. Look for the sign up genius to be set up very soon so that you can volunteer. We look forward to seeing many friendly faces back at St. George’s working for others.
