Students at St. Ann School in Arlington are fixing around 100 sandwiches a week for a local shelter, continuing a long-standing tradition of service. During Thursdays in Lent, students take turns meeting in the parish hall after school to assemble sandwiches that are delivered to Bailey’s Crossroads Community Shelter in Falls Church. 

Two different grades are assigned each week — one brings bread and the other brings sandwich meat — and older students are paired with the younger. Together, the students bag and box hundreds of meals for those in need throughout the Lenten season.
