‘Not So Home Alone’ Event Brings Community Together1 min read

Nativity, St. Charles hosted it’s first-ever ‘Not So Home Alone’ Christmas Dinner on Dec. 25, 2014 in order to serve the community and those who would otherwise spend the holiday alone or at work. The church is still abuzz with the excitement this event generated, and we are definitely planning on repeating this service event again next year. These photos tell the story:

95 meals were served, and there was plenty for the volunteers to eat as well. Meals were also delivered to those working or unable to physically make it to the dinner.
