In Memory of Stephen Fink – father, friend and beloved sandwich artist, Pasadena Sandwich Company and the Fink Family are excited to carry on the tradition of serving Thanksgiving meals to Pasadena families in transition through the annual Share A Meal event! By coming together as a community, safe and fun environment for families to enjoy Thanksgiving together have been provided year after year. Last year, over 300 people were served, distributed 60 blessing bags with local goods and services for guest families, and helped as every child in attendance shopped for a brand new backpack and school supplies! But the Fink Family could never do it without your help! If you would like to donate to the cause email us at pasadenashareameal@gmail.com under the subject heading “SAM Donation.” “Thank you so much for supporting us in our efforts here in Pasadena.” If you would like to make an online contribution or volunteer your time, please copy and paste the following link into your browser: www.pasadenashareameal.com
