The program will begin at 6:00PM Thursday, when we will be taking part in fun and engaging community building activities and group discussions about hunger and homeless before sleeping over at CM in the gym in solidarity with our homeless brothers and sisters who sleep on the hard ground on the streets. On Friday morning, we will rise early and get to work in the Student Commons making 1000 brown bag lunches consisting of a sandwich, snack, and a drink. Students will then assist in delivering the completed lunches to the hungry of the greater Boston area at local soup kitchens and homeless shelters. We will break the fast with a pizza lunch before concluding the program at 1:00PM on Friday. Students will be credited with 6 service hours for their work, but most importantly, they will have the lifelong experience of standing in solidarity with the least of their brothers and sisters.
-Grades 9-11 will be invited for the entirety of the program: Thursday evening, overnight, and Friday portions. Students in grade 12 who have previously participated are invited to apply with Mr Durazo to serve as a leader. -Grades 7-8 are invited to join the program on Friday morning at 7:30AM in the student Commons. Middle school students will join the high school participants in making 1000 sandwiches, and will be placed in a middle school specific group for a delivery into Boston. The event will conclude for all students at 1:00PM on Friday with a closing service and a communal meal to break the fast.
The cost of participating is $10.00. This donation will cover student's participation and provide 7 meals to those in need.
