When Campus Minister Intern Larry Cubalchini joined the CCSJ family in September, he hit the ground running and never looked back. Larry’s first project was a toy drive for Christmas that was widely successful. In January he began the “Sandwich Project”.
Every Wednesday, Larry and his group of volunteers from the College make 150-200 sandwiches. The sandwiches are part of bagged lunches delivered by Port Ministries through their Bread Truck program. The Bread Truck is a “soup kitchen on wheels” and drives to eight different locations in Chicago’s Back of the Yards neighborhood to battle hunger. They provide over 134,000 meals a year.
This project also allows members of the CCSJ family to assist others while being mindful of the pandemic. Volunteers gather around noon each Wednesday for about 30 minutes.
