As an important community outreach initiative, the Miller Group provides simple, but nutritious, packed lunches for those in need. Members help to shop for supplies, prepare sandwiches and pack and distribute the lunches.
Within each activity (Purchasing, Preparing sandwiches, and Distribution), members rotate on a scheduled basis every 4 weeks. Purchasing happens according to the schedule of the shopper. Sandwiches are prepared on Sunday afternoons at 2:30 pm in the Parish Kitchen. Distribution occurs on the same day, between 3:00 and 4:00 pm. Volunteers are always welcome to join on a regular (weekly) or occasional basis.
There are no volunteer requirements to work with the Miller Group, except for friendliness and reliability. You are also welcome to come by and simply have a cup of coffee/tea with the patrons anytime. Many of them are excellent conversationalists.
