Those who may be spending the day alone are also welcome to come and enjoy the festive, traditional holiday meal that is served in a warm and comforting atmosphere.
More than 800 men, women and children are expected to arrive for the meal, and nearly one hundred volunteers will be on hand to help with preparing, serving and clean-up. Guests should arrive at 11:30 a.m. and 6:00 p.m.
Christmas gift bags of personal care items will be distributed at both meals, and special gift bags have been prepared for the children.
