— On Wednesday, March 21, a group of Churchill Road kindergarten, third and fourth graders, their teachers and family members made sandwiches for Martha’s Table, a non-profit organization in Washington, D.C. that serves sandwiches to those in need. Organized by Churchill Road PTA’s Community Service Committee co-chairs Marta Bascom, Robin Hoeymans and Sarah Walter, with donations of bread, meat and cheese from CRS students and their families, the volunteers were able to make nearly 2,000 sandwiches, a new record for the school. Over the course of the year, more than 5,000 sandwiches were prepared for Martha’s Table.
