For me, growing up, the Sunday meal was something that I looked forward throughout most of the week. It was a time when family and friends came together. The meal was secondary to the feeling of belonging to a group; to that feeling of having a place to feel welcome and accepted. I want to share that experience with others.
The SundayShare is a service project that will benefit the homeless youth of Covenant House Atlantic City. This initiative will make room at different dinner tables in effort to include these youth at Sunday meals, so that they can enjoy the fellowship and community of others.
For four consecutive Sundays (March 23 and 30 & April 6 and 13), a select number of Covenant House residents and staff will join me at Host Family homes to enjoy meals, conversation, laughs, games & other activities, and, a sense of belonging that few rarely have an opportunity to experience.
If you are an Atlantic County, New Jersey resident who would like more information about hosting an upcoming SundayShare, please send an email (with “SundayShare” in the subject line) to: email@example.com.
