King Jr. Feb. 4, 1968 at Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, GA.
💫In honor and remembrance of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s spirit and determination to serve & love we are excited to connect into our small way of serving our community by making sandwiches for those in need of food assistance in Cobb County. 📷
💖A special thank you goes to @Adventure Air Sports Kennesaw in for sponsoring us at no charge for the use of the party room to make our sandwiches. These sandwiches are also being made & given through the inspiration of The Sandwich Project of Atlanta. 📷https://www.thesandwichproject.org (If any volunteers are interested in helping them expand into the West Cobb area on a regular basis please contact me).
🎂 After sandwich making we will celebrate KIDS CARE's 4th birthday of incorporating into a nonprofit (Jan. 21 2019). We'll have sweet treats and then its PLAY Time!
⭐Volunteers & families will be offered a discounted rate for an hour of fun play time at the facility. Entry into Adventure Air will need to be paid by each family upon arrival - the discounted rate is $20 per person which includes the socks. Any additional hour(s)of jump/play time will only be $6.00 per person after that. A unique wavier link will be sent to you after you sign up with KIDS CARE.
⭐PLEASE NOTE: YOU DO NOT HAVE TO PAY TO ENTER AND MAKE SANDWICHES. KIDS CARE will supply sandwich materials at no cost to volunteers. You will only pay for your family to play.
💙If interested in donating we would love help purchasing sandwich supplies including: white bread, turkey/ham deli meat, and American cheese. Additional items that can be donated include: Fresh fruit (apples, oranges, green bananas), small boxes of raisins, and soft chewy protein bars.
