**Please note, there is an important change to our Friday Hospitality program -- see below.**
Friday Sack Lunches
Friday Sack Lunch Program & Sign-up
Saint Clement parishioners provide sack lunches for the hungry and needy in the neighborhood every Friday of the year, including holidays. The Friday Sack Lunch program is made possible by volunteers who sign up to bring six sack lunches each week for our guests. This happens every Friday, rain or shine. Sack Lunches are to be dropped off Thursdays between 9:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m. at the reception desk or Fridays between 8:00 a.m. and 9:20 a.m. at the table set up on the parish lawn. We are looking to have 15 Friday Sack Lunch volunteers each week. Please visit the sign-up link to reserve your spot!
Each sack lunch should contain:
- 2 lunchmeat sandwiches with no condiments, cheese is optional but a nice addition
- 2 hard boiled eggs
- 1 bag of chips (or similar)
- 1 piece of soft fruit (for example, orange, banana, grapes)
- dessert (cookies or candy bar)
- beverage (juice box, can of soda, or 8oz water bottle / sports drink)
Please pack each lunch in a gallon-sized plastic bag (like Ziploc's). Or, please use a plastic grocery bag.
- Thursday between 9:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m. -- drop off at the parish reception desk
- Friday morning between 8:00 a.m. and 9:20 a.m. -- drop off outside at the table on parish lawn
**Important Changes to Friday Hospitality**
Starting on September 17, 2021, students from Saint Clement School will participate as Friday Hospitality Volunteers. Because of this change to the program, all volunteers for the Friday Hospitality program are required to complete Virtus training, Mandatory Reporter training, and a CANTS background check before your next scheduled volunteer date. Please follow the instructions and links found on our Protecting God's Children web page; please save your certificates of completion and contact Martina Ricca to learn your next step.
Friday Hospitality Program & Sign-up
Volunteers are also needed to aid in offering refreshments to those who wait in line outside during our regularly scheduled Friday sack lunch program. The Friday Hospitality Volunteers are responsible for the set-up and clean-up of the event, as well as interacting with the guests. Share in hospitality and conversation, and serve as a welcoming face of Saint Clement. Volunteers will be present from 7:30-10:30 a.m. every Friday, rain or shine. Each week, we are in need of four adult Hospitality Volunteers to be present. Please visit the sign-up link to reserve your spot!
Friday Hospitality LOGISTICS
For those who would like to provide breakfast/hospitality items, we will be accepting travelers of coffee and hot chocolate as well as individually wrapped breakfast items, to be dropped off between 8:00 and 8:30 a.m.
