Bethesda Mission will once again host a traditional Christmas Day Dinner for the community. The meal will feature baked ham, roasted turkey, macaroni and cheese, collard greens, glazed carrots, sweet potato pie, salad, fruit salad, rolls and butter, dessert and beverages. The dinner will be held at the Men’s Shelter, located at 611 Reily Street, Harrisburg and run from about 4:30 – 5:30 p.m.
Anyone in need is encouraged to join us for this meal and fellowship during this time.
“Christmas is a season of celebration, and Christmas day should be special. However, many people in our community are alone or in need, and the celebrations enjoyed by others just make them feel worse. Bethesda Mission is a haven of peace and celebration open to all who would like to join us for Christmas dinner,” stated Chuck Wingate, executive director of the Mission.
In all, nearly 50 volunteers will be involved in making sure that those who visit with us for Christmas will have some good memories. Those unable to physically come to the Mission will be able to have a meal delivered to their homes (within a five-mile radius of the Mission). If you are in need a meal, please call 257-4442 by Friday, December 23rd to be included on the schedule.
*All volunteer spots have been filled for Christmas Dinner this year. Thank you for your interest – please consider volunteering another day!*
