Close your eyes and imagine what Christmas would be like if you lived alone, with no one around to experience the holiday? How would it feel to sit alone and have a can of beans for dinner while others celebrated with food, presents and each other.

For many people in our area that is the reality, which is why the Salvation Army Christmas Dinner is there. Volunteers try to bring the spirit of the holiday as well as company, food and presents to the nearly 600 people normally served who would not have a Christmas without them.
