Drop Off Sack Lunches for Skid Row

Save to Favorites

The Midnight Mission



WHAT: Make and drop off sack lunches for people experiencing homelessness near the Midnight Mission.

ABOUT THE MIDNIGHT MISSION: Founded in 1914, The Midnight Mission offers paths to self-sufficiency to men, women and children who have lost direction. Our emergency services and 12-step recovery, family living, job training, education and workforce development programs offer a compassionate bridge to achieve and maintain healthy, productive lives.

VOLUNTEER RESPONSIBILITIES: In compliance with social distancing protocols, you'll make 10+ sack lunches at home and then drop them off at the mission between 7am and 11am. (You can drop off later than 11am, but meals will be given out the next day.) You won't be in contact with anyone, but can still have a powerful impact.

IMPACT: The Midnight Mission is a comprehensive homeless shelter and homeless services provider. They need your help now more than ever - they went from feeding roughly 400 people at each meal to feeding 1800 people each meal. And with food supplies scarcer than before, the Midnight Mission needs your help feeding the hungry.

REQUIREMENTS: Sack lunches should consist of...

Ham, turkey, or beef sandwich with light mayo/mustard (To be cautious of nut allergies, we request no peanut butter and jelly sandwiches please)

2+ side snacks (chips, fruit, granola bars, cheese, etc)

No need to include beverages or napkins (those are covered by the Mission)

not been or felt sick in the last 2 weeks
