Student-led 'Bread for the Apple' to Raise Money for NYC Soup Kitchen
Tuesday, September 13, 2011
In honor of the 10-year anniversary of 9-11, Augustana students will be hosting a series of bake sales and collecting donations for New York City’s Trinity Lutheran Church, a soup kitchen on the lower eastside of Manhattan that serves some 1,000 meals to people in need each week.
“A meal for one individual costs about $2. We want to be able to help as many people as we can,” said senior Jackie Miles, vice president of SALT. “Our goal is to raise $7,500.”
Donations will be accepted during Chapel services and at “Bread for the Apple donation spots” located inside the residence halls.
The bake sales will be held outside the Chapel of Reconciliation following worship on the following dates:
- Wednesday, Sept. 14
- Wednesday, Sept. 21
- Wednesday, Oct. 5
