NP3 High’s Key Club members recently made more than 100 peanut butter and jelly sandwiches to help feed area homeless.

“PB & Js for Change” is an ongoing project started by Kelechi, an NP3 junior, who wanted to help the homeless near the Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrament in downtown Sacramento.

“I wanted to help make an impact on this issue because I believe we should make greater efforts to help those within our larger community who are less fortunate than many others,” said Kelechi .

Students in Key Club made 150 sandwiches on April 25 and was organized as a part of the service-learning project. Many club members also contributed donations to the project such as peanut butter, jelly, and bread.

After the event, Kelechi delivered the sandwiches to the cathedral. The Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrament host a Brown Bag Ministry which handed the sandwiches out to homeless guests who visited the cathedral.

“During future events, I hope to extend my event by organizing a group to help serve these brown bag lunches directly to homeless populations as a partnership with the Brown Bag Ministry,” added Kelechi.

This project is ongoing, so if you would like to help this cause, please contact Kelechi at .
