On Sunday afternoon, the Project No Labels team gathered together in the Beacon House community room to make deli sandwiches for area shelters, including the Beacon House and Hannah’s Homeless.
With more than 30 people in attendance, 539 sandwiches were made in under 30 minutes time.
According to The Beacon House website, this 501(c)3 human services organization is a free clinic that “provides safe, supportive, transitional shelter to single, homeless men.” Established in 1997, the clinic houses up to 25 men at a time and also provides community members with food and health care assistance.
While Hannah’s Homeless doesn’t provide shelter, the 501(c)3 does provide clean clothes, use of the phone, hygiene items, non-perishable food items, and resources to help those in need find jobs and places to live.
Project No Labels hosts weekly events that unite LGBTQ+ community members with straight allies in Tampa Bay through positive activities and events, promoting volunteerism and activism. Their Sandwich Sundays get-togethers are one of many ways this organization gives back to the local community.
