Making Sandwiches For the Community

Lil Tip: Making Sandwiches

One of the worst crimes I ever committed was smart talking to my parents in front of their very proper friends. As part of my punishment, my mom dragged me to church every Wednesday night for a month to make sandwiches for the homeless. Kicking and screaming at first, I quickly started to enjoy the bonding time with my mama and learned a couple of things:

  • Don't disrespect your parents — whether their friends are present or not.
  • Volunteering can be fun and rewarding.

After serving my time, my mom and I continued to make bologna sandwiches on Wednesday evenings. My mother, now a Sunday school teacher, gathers her class once a month to make 50 bagged lunches and then drops them off to people in need. It is a quick and easy example to set for your children, and chances are, they will love to help you spread the mayo and mustard onto to those slices of bread.
