720 Sandwiches

Since early fall, the Junior Unit has made 720 sandwiches for the residents of My Brother's House, a men's shelter at 15th & Kater Streets.  With the support of The Philadelphia Pretzel Company, students held seven pretzel sales to raise funds to purchase some of the ingredients. South Square Market has underwritten much of the cost.  Each week, students make 40 sandwiches, requiring 4 pounds of turkey and 3 pounds of cheese.  Families donate the bread, and students volunteer their snack time to make and bag the sandwiches.  Will we reach 1,000 sandwiches this year?
