Annual Christmas dinner planned

The Hall St. shelter will host its annual dinner December 25th.

As the holiday season approaches, the Ksan Society’s Hall St. homeless shelter is busy accepting donations and stocking up on turkeys for its annual Christmas dinner.

House manager Rob McVey says, as every year, the dinner is open to the community and all are welcome to come and sit down to a hot meal and good company.

He said the dinner is always well attended  with about 80 – 120 people coming to the house on Christmas day.

“All kinds of people come,” McVey said, adding that if persons have a family member who cannot make it in to the dinner, they are able to take a full plate home.

He plans to be able to hand out gifts of warm clothing and toiletries, something the shelter is collecting and storing for the day, but the volume available is always a bit of an unknown.

“We really never know what is going to be donated,” he explained.

The dinner is normally assisted by three of four returning volunteers, but anyone interested in helping out can contact the shelter for more information, McVey said.

“People can donate time or a food item, desserts are a big thing,” he said.

Dinner starts at 3 p.m.
