Making Sandwiches for Martha’s Table

Making Sandwiches for Martha’s Table


Churchill Road first graders Maya Tabor, Daniel Wu, Lucas Rogers (partially obscured), Justin Lee, Edward Park, Devin Diba and Silvy Munn concentrate on making sandwiches for the homeless at Martha’s Table.

On Oct. 9, Churchill Road first and sixth graders, along with members of Girl Scout Troop 1588, banded together for the first official community service activity of the school year. The group made sandwiches for Martha’s Table, a shelter in Washington, D.C., which serves more than 2,500 sandwiches daily to the homeless and those in need. Utilizing more than 100 loaves of bread and 700+ slices of meat and cheese donated by the Churchill Road community, the hard-working group of students, scouts and parent volunteers made a record 2,263 sandwiches for this worthy organization. This event was coordinated by Churchill Road PTA Community Service Committee Co-Chairs Robin Hoeymans and Sarah Walter.
