Under the Cross Ministry’s goal is to learn about the good work happening around us, offer our time and talent in a service project at Annunciation or at the highlighted organization.

Each year, various organizations put together programs for Thanksgiving and Christmas to help feed, clothe and take care of those less fortunate. There is a remarkable amount of time, energy and money that goes into these programs. An honest question, pondered by those who participate is; what happens on the other days of the year?
The Sandwich Project of MN was established with the other days in mind. Our starting goal was to help feed 150 homeless & hungry people in Minneapolis as many times a year as possible, with the ultimate goal of doing it everyday of the year. Today, we are helping to feed about 2500+ people per week through various shelters and food shelves.
Our process is simple: groups of people sign up to make sandwiches and deliver directly to our community partners. We are currently serving food shelves in the Minneapolis area.
The Sandwich Project is a grassroots organization built on anonymous donations of time, talent and treasures. All donations are given and used with the purpose of feeding those less fortunate.

More than 1.7 billion people around the world are unbanked and can’t access the financial services they need. Kiva is an international nonprofit, founded in 2005 in San Francisco, with a mission to expand financial access to help underserved communities thrive.
We do this by crowdfunding loans and unlocking capital for the underserved, improving the quality and cost of financial services, and addressing the underlying barriers to financial access around the world. Through Kiva's work, students can pay for tuition, women can start businesses, farmers are able to invest in equipment and families can afford needed emergency care.
By lending as little as $25 on Kiva, you can be part of the solution and make a real difference in someone’s life.
100% of every dollar you lend on Kiva goes to funding loans.
