Chipotle for a Cause Tonight

Come support Team Jamaica’s service-immersion trip with your purchase at Chipotle tonight! Present the flyer below at the Chipotle restaurant located at 1717 Walden Avenue in Cheektowaga and 50 percent of the proceeds will be donated to support the team’s trip.

While in Jamaica, the group will work with children and adults with special needs through Mustard Seed Communities, a non-profit organization dedicated to caring for the most vulnerable populations in society.

The service-immersion experiences through Campus Ministry travel to the most marginalized communities in the world. Each of the trips incorporate both direct, hands-on work with people in need and learning opportunities that help students grasp the social, economic, political, religious and cultural contexts in which they work.
