HOPEMOBILE SANDWICH MAKING

The Hope Center’s Mobile Outreach Program, the HopeMobile, is parked at a different downtown location each weekday. We rely on the generosity of our volunteers to prepare the 100+ sack lunches that are distributed to people in need each weekday.

Sandwiches for the HopeMobile should be high-protein with no condiments. For example, turkey or bologna and cheese, or PB&J. We have packets of mayo/mustard that we give out with them, so they don’t get soggy if we need to store them overnight. Please place each sandwich in an individual Ziploc bag. We do prefer meat and cheese sandwiches, as they last a bit longer. For sack lunches, please include fruit cups, fruit, granola bars, beef jerky sticks, cookies or individually wrapped snack items or crackers.

Sandwiches and sack lunches may be dropped off at the Men’s Emergency Shelter, 360 W. Loudon, any day between 8:00 AM – 8:00 PM. Please call the front desk at 859-252-7881 and they will send a staff member to your vehicle to pick up your donation, as we are only allowing staff and clients inside the Shelter at this time. You do not need to schedule your sandwich making time, just drop off donations when it’s convenient for you, and there’s no set amount you need to prepare. Thank you for helping us serve those most in need here in our community!
