Make Sandwiches for TAP at CCPC
WHAT IS THE TAP PROGRAM?
For more than 35 years, CCPC has hosted and operated a unique and essential service called the Transition Assistance Program (TAP). TAP clients come for help obtaining government-issued IDs (birth certificates or non-driver ID). Without these documents, clients can't get a job or enroll their children in services. Staff and trained volunteers are able to help them apply for the documents they need. While clients wait, they are offered a sandwich made by our volunteers. It is often the only meal they receive that day.
WHAT IS NEEDED?
Each day TAP is open (Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays), 15 sandwiches are needed - made on hearty bread, with turkey and two slices of cheese (no mayo or mustard). The sandwiches need to be cut in half and placed in individual baggies.
WHY GET INVOLVED?
On the days when I was really on top of my game, my kids and I made sandwiches together while we talked about how important it was to help hungry people who were less fortunate than we were. On other days, I made the sandwiches alone but happy there was finally a service project that I could squeeze into my hectic schedule. Maybe you could fit this into your schedule, even once this year.
IT'S EASY TO SIGN UP ONLINE
Just the click the "Sign Up" button at the top of the page. You can volunteer just once, or on a regular schedule. Any help you can provide is so appreciated by the clients of TAP!
WHERE DO I DELIVER SANDWICHES?
The TAP office is accessible through rear entrance to the church from the parking lot on Oliver Street. The sandwiches need to be delivered no later than 8:45 am on the day you signed up for - perfect for a Nursery School family to bring by before school drop off!
