Housing/Hunger

Please join a decades-old holiday tradition to provide Christmas dinner and holiday cheer to 300 homeless men and women at area shelters. There are several ways to participate including donating hats and gloves, contributing pies for Christmas dinner, serving dinner at shelters or making a financial donation. Contact Lisa Hack or Elise Caplan for more information.

These are great opportunities for the whole family.
