St. John of God Community Services hosted its second annual Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service, this year. Organized by volunteer coordinator Kristine Merckx, this year’s service project directly benefited Cathedral Hall, part of the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception in Camden.

Cathedral Hall provides free sandwiches each day to nearly 300 people in the Camden area. All volunteers in attendance helped to make sandwiches, which were given out at Cathedral Hall the following day.

Close to 30 volunteers from both Bishop Eustace Preparatory School and the community were on hand to assemble enough sandwiches to supply Cathedral Hall for the day.

Members from Bishop Eustace also delivered the sandwiches to Cathedral Hall.
