On Saturday, February 29, 2020, members of the Sun Valley High School Beta Club participated in Operation Sandwich for the Urban Ministry Center in Charlotte. Beta members made over 700 sandwiches that were used to feed the homeless in our area.
The Urban Ministry Sponsors Operation Sandwich, which provides nearly 300,000 sandwiches to the homeless in Charlotte. The Urban Ministry Center is an interfaith organization dedicated to bringing the community together to end homelessness, one life at a time. The Urban Ministry Center serves as a point of entry to services offered by a network of agencies that work closely together to provide necessary opportunities for the Charlotte homeless population. As an interfaith agency, they draw support and volunteers from more than 130 houses of faith.
The Urban Ministry Center opened its doors in December 1994 as a partnership of uptown congregations and businesses to address the needs of the poor and homeless with compassion and tangible help.
