JoyJ’s St. Anthony chapter set a new JoyJ record at its 8th outreach this weekend, distributing 250 bags in one outreach! The chapter’s core committee packed supplies into bags at 9am, more volunteers arrived at 10am to make 250 fresh sandwiches, abiding by NYC regulations, and the rest of the 80 volunteers arrived by 10:30am for a brief orientation. From there, the volunteers split up into 4 groups, each led to a nearby neighborhood by experienced volunteers, where they had meaningful interactions and made the lives of the homeless a little less painful for a day.
Thank you all for helping to make a difference! If you weren’t able to attend this outreach but are interested in participating, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for a schedule of upcoming outreaches or sponsor a bag today.
