The event aims to assist people in need with a free meal, haircut and provide resources for job opportunities.
The Rescue Mission of Salt Lake currently serves more than 830 meals each day. The Rescue Mission impacts many lives in Salt Lake City, giving the homeless community a place to use as their home base to improve their lives.
Local Subway® restaurants aim to provide them with food for one meal in order to help the Rescue Mission provide further support to other programs or to extend the availability of their food services. Volunteers are expected to serve at least 1200 sandwiches to those in need.
