The Blessing Bag Brigade at St. Peter’s Church (Freehold)
The Blessing Bag Brigade has joined with St. Peter’s Church at 33 Throckmorton Street in Freehold Boro to help those in need of a meal.
Volunteers can visit their website and sign up for one or more slots. Each volunteer makes 10 sandwiches per slot, on either Wednesday or Thursday. Sandwiches can be peanut butter and jelly, vegetable, turkey, ham, chicken or cheese. The wrapped sandwiches then are dropped off at St. Peter’s later that day between the hours of 10:30 and 11:30 A.M. To participate, sign up through this link:
