There are 11, 623 homeless people in Washington, D.C right now. We can feed a good amount of them if we each bring in a McKenna sandwich each Wednesday morning. McKenna sandwiches have helped so many people and it’s important to remember the actual differences that these sandwiches make. They don’t just affect the people who they feed; McKenna sandwiches affect the people who make them.
When you make a McKenna sandwich, you’re helping your community. You are helping another human being by giving them a sandwich. It’s amazing that a single sandwich can make a huge difference. For a lot of students, McKenna sandwiches are a weekly service. However, there are still some weeks where there aren’t as many sandwiches made. That’s ok, but it’s important to remember to try to make at least one. It takes five minutes, maybe less.
Holy Trinity’s McKenna sandwich tradition has been going on for years. We need to keep making them and giving to the community. When you make a McKenna sandwich, you’re making food for someone who really needs it. When we don’t make a sandwich, that’s one less person who gets fed. There should be no person left unfed.
