Help is in the bag

Fourth-graders at Providence Spring Elementary know that something as simple as lunch isn’t to be taken for granted.

Students participated in last week’s “Operation Sandwich,” their annual food drive project that provides 3,700 sandwiches to homeless families in the Charlotte community through Urban Ministries. The sandwiches – along with a bag of chips, a banana, a mint and condiments – were to accompany homemade cookies to create 1,850 bagged lunches. The kids volunteered before school hours to create the lunches, which they decorated with inspirational messages. The program includes a visit by a representative from the Urban Ministry Center, as well as people who have benefited from the center’s services, as a way of showing how programs such as Urban Ministry helped homeless people find housing.
