FOR TWO HOURS, ONE SANDWICH AT A TIME, HELP LESSEN THE BURDEN OF HOMELESSNESS FOR LGBT YOUTH SERVED BY SYLVIA’S PLACE.
On Tuesday, June 19, Out Professionals invites you to join other public-spirited Members and friends in a two-hour sandwich-making effort.
Under the guidance of One Sandwich at a Time, volunteers will create hundreds of nutritious sandwiches for those served by MCCNY Homeless Youth Services, whose Sylvia’s Place remains one of the city’s only shelters to accept youth directly off the street, without a referral. As a result, Sylvia’s Place has become a refuge for the underserved — transgender youth and those experiencing trauma or living with HIV/AIDS.
Founded by Erin Dinan, One Sandwich at a Time has been awarded U.N. recognition for its impact.
Sandwich-making, socializing and networking, 6 to 8 p.m.
Cornucopia, 245 West 29th Street (Loft 1202), between 7th and 8th Avenues. Enter Loft 1202 through the open-air alcove opposite the elevators. Subway: No. 1 to 28th Street; 2/3/A/C/E to 34th Street Penn Station; N/R to 28th Street.
$20 per person, to get out the word, provide the fixings and benefit One Sandwich at a Time. Bring a hat or cap to cover your hair; we’ll supply everything else. Capacity limited; advance registration closes at noon on June 19, or when the event is full. Sorry, no refunds or exchanges. Walk-ins welcome, space permitting; cash only at the door.
