Church hosts Christmas dinner

More than 50 volunteers donate their time to make the event possible.

Community is on the menu as the Salvation Army hosts a free Christmas dinner for those in need.

“We want to be available for the community,” said George Katchanov of the Salvation Army. “It is really geared towards people who are finding themselves in a predicament financially. Shut ins, seniors, or someone who wants to have some fellowship.”

The free annual dinner, organized with the help of a number of West Shore churches providing turkeys for the dinner and West Shore business donating to the cause, which served more than 220 people last year.

More than 50 volunteers donate their time to make the event possible.

“We want to offer some moments of joy and make someone’s Christmas more delightful,” Katchanov said. “That is what it is all about, bringing some joy and Christmas cheer to people.”

Dinner is served Dec. 4, 6 to 8 p.m. at Our Lady of the Rosary church, 798 Goldstream Ave.
