Yes, we did 100 volunteer events in 100 days… Did you think we’d make it?
We had been to so many events (99 to be exact), so we decided for the 100th to create one ourselves. So we teamed up with Cathedral Kitchen and 30 Net Impact conference attendees. Together, we made 600 turkey & cheese sandwiches and 600 cookies with our 4 Grain Hot Cereal (our more than “oatmeal” cookie recipe).
We then put together 300 “take home” bags and brought them to the Cathedral Kitchen. Each bag included 2 sandwiches, an apple, cookies, Pepperidge Farm Goldfish and water. They were distributed as an extra take home meal to the people and families that went for dinner at Cathedral Kitchen that night.
It was the perfect way to end 100 days of volunteering. Helping community members in need… Ones that live right next door.
This has been such an amazing experience for all of us. We have met so many volunteers that have inspired us and made so many friends. We have learned so much about our community and our partners Philabundance, Community FoodBank of New Jersey, Food Bank of South Jersey, NJ Farmers Against Hunger and of course the The Cathedral Kitchen. We also now know the entire state of NJ and where all of the good rest stops are on the NJ Turnpike
So for everyone who’s been following us from the very first event, giving us encouragement along the way… For our families who have been supporting us as we fit one hundred events into 100 days… For everyone who just discovered us and has liked our posts or commented on our stories… And for everyone who has bought Soulfull Project… We want to say THANK YOU.
But guess what? We may be done the 100, but we are really just getting started. This is just the beginning…
