A fixture in the community that aims to ensure no one is alone for Christmas dinner is still taking reservations.
For over 25 years, the Belleville Salvation Army and Christmas Sharing Program have ensured those who would otherwise be alone can come together for Christmas dinner.
Christmas Sharing Program coordinator Pam Smith said as always the free Salvation Army Christmas dinner comes with all the fixings – turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes and gravy.
On Christmas Day in 2015, volunteers served up dinner with a smile to roughly 160 people at the Salvation Army Community Church at 290 Bridge Street West
and 110 have signed up to take part this year.
Smith explained she and her spouse volunteer to drive patrons home after the dinner.
Dinners can also be delivered to those who can’t make it for health reasons.
All of the items provided in the dinner are graciously donated by community partners.
For those interested, dinner begins December 25 at noon and runs until about 1:30 p.m.
Registration closes December 22.
