We’ve been asked if we would be able to make sandwiches for a group of approx 30 Asylum Seekers and Refugees in our city on a daily basis.
It would mean a small group of volunteers coming to the CFC East building for about 1.5hrs each morning to prepare and pack the food. No previous experience necessary just a heart to serve and pray over each sandwich!
