Why Christmas Eve?

The holiday season can be a very depressing time of the year — especially if you are alone, are in need— and are homeless.   We are all a part of God’s family and we want to bring our families together to share a meal and share what we have with those, no matter what their reason, are in need.

“I will always remember and be grateful to the family who adopted me and brought me into their home to share a holiday meal with them….”


“This event was so amazing!  My family truly was blessed ….”
