March 26, 2019 (San Diego) -- Students, faculty and parents from the San Diego Jewish Academy will attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the most sandwiches assembled in three minutes on April 1, and will donate the assembled sandwiches to San Diego’s Alpha Project, an organization dedicated to helping the homeless change their lives and achieve self-sufficiency.
Representatives from the Alpha Project will be the beneficiary of these sandwiches and will be attending the event to provide education on the challenges of homelessness in our local community.
The Jewish value of Tikkun Olam- “Repairing the World” is a vital part of this Blue Ribbon school’s programming and educating students about the importance of helping others. San Diego Jewish Academy’s unique hands on approach maintains excitement and student engagement. Hopefully, these efforts will lead to breaking a Guinness World Record ™!
“Alpha Project would like to thank the San Diego Jewish Academy for providing sandwiches to our clients in need. We will be distributing these to our homeless residents in the temporary bridge shelter as well as to our clients living on the streets,” says Bob McElroy, President and CEO,” who voiced appreciation and called the support “a blessing.”
