Work Begins Making 10,000 Sandwiches For Monday Giveaway
Oakmont Bakery owner Marc Serrao takes you behind the counter where they're slicing the meat for this big event.
Hey folks, a quick update for you on the huge effort to make 10,000 sandwiches and get them to people who need them. It's all coming together lightning-quick thanks to Eric Chaffin and his team from the Chaffin Luhana Foundation and my man, Marc Serrao. He's the owner of the Oakmont Bakery where just about everything is taking place. In fact, today, he made this video to show you what's happening in the kitchen.
This really is a team effort. The Chaffin Luhana Foundation is paying for the labor to get these sandwiches made, and some of the materials. Other businesses have stepped up as well... helping slice meat, donating cheese, lettuce, chips, milk. It's just amazing.
