Once again, the Friends at Christmas will be providing a Christmas Day dinner for people who cannot prepare their own, and for people who are otherwise alone.

This annual event is the result of work and contributions made by 17 churches in Salmon Arm, who pull together to supply the food as well as to do most of the volunteer tasks including cooking and washing. Volunteers gather the day before Christmas to set up, and then on Christmas Day, they cook and serve the festive meal.

“Some 50 little tasks fit together to make a family of busy workers,” says co-ordinator Rick Hunter. If you wish to participate, call Winston at 250-517-7216.

The tickets are free, but only 200 are available at Pharmasave, the Mental Health Thrift Store on Hudson, Senior’s Resource Centre, Salvation Army, The Sonlight Soup Kitchen, Second Harvest and the All Churches Thrift Store.

Rides can be provided where necessary.
