The holiday season can be a very depressing time of the year — especially if you are alone, are in need— and are homeless. We want to bring our families together to share a meal and share what we have with those who, no matter what their reason, are in need.
The Martin Center, Anchor House of Alliance, WHBC and over a dozen area agencies are partnering to host a “Family Christmas Eve” dinner for the homeless and near-homeless of Stark County.
It’s a holiday fest that includes Christmas Turkey, ham and “all the fixins”. Those attending will also be able to walk through a store where many needed items will be given away, including hats, coats, gloves, scarves, socks, tents, and sleeping bags.
Some of the professional services offered that day will be haircuts, makeup and nails, and the opportunity to take a hot shower. There will also be live stage musical entertainment.
“A Family Christmas Eve; Share the Warmth” is an annual event to not only offer our displaced friends some necessary items to help get them through the winter but to also to raise the awareness of the services provided by many area organizations.
We need clothing items, baked goods, and financial donations to help make the event possible. WHBC listeners can volunteer to help or offer special services! Just click on the ‘share the warmth” logo below.
