Christmas is coming and with it the promise of familiar traditions and desire for meaningful experiences has people making plans.
Each year this season means sentiment is stirred around the tradition and spirit of Christmas and what it stands for.
For the last five years, Mission’s Hope Central in partnership with All Saints Church has provided a community meal where people are invited to come and be together around a family style Christmas dinner.
Beyond serving the homeless, this event promotes coming and being part of a time where the focus is on how each of us are the same; despite our diversity.
On December 25 a crowd will gather around appetizers and eat their way through turkey straight to dessert. Gifts will be available to those who may not otherwise have them. With musicians providing the soundtrack to the celebration, volunteers and participants alike look forward to a few hours of self-spending.
Do you have something to give?
People willing to set up and serve the main course are gathering from noon to 3 p.m. at All Saints Church (the meal begins at 2 p.m).
If you find yourself alone, lonely or scrambling to remember the heart of the Christmas season, consider joining us in serving this holiday or helping to sponsor the event.
Donations of food, outerwear, gift cards or cash can be dropped at Throwback Fitness (the new gym in the old legion building). Helpers are invited to email firstname.lastname@example.org to RSVP.
