Bread of Life Annual Christmas Dinner
Bread of Life's Annual Christmas Dinner will be held Tuesday, December 25, 2012 from noon until 2 p.m. at St. Paul's Parish, 26 Washington Street, Malden.
All are welcome to be our guests for a free roast beef dinner with all the fixings, dessert & coffee. Plus – there will be a special warm gift for each guest. No reservations are needed.
Bread of Life expects to serve about 250 people at the dinner, and volunteers will deliver an additional 300 meals to homebound senior citizens, and 200 meals to families who are homeless and sheltered in local motels.
On Christmas Day the dining hall, where Bread of Life serves its regular evening meal, will be wonderfully decorated with lights, garlands and a Christmas tree. Tables will be laden with breads, pies, cakes and fruits. Many volunteers will help serve roast beef, vegetables, stuffing, mashed potatoes and gravy. Each person attending the meal will also receive a small gift bag containing a warm clothing item.
We are seeking donations of men’s & women’s new socks, gloves, hats & scarves for these gift bags. If you can help, please drop off gift items at the Bread of Life office, 54 Eastern Avenue Rear in Malden, by December 21, 2012.
Meal delivery is available Christmas Day to local senior citizens or disabled individuals who are housebound and unable to get out under normal circumstances. If you are in this situation and would like a meal delivered to you, please call Bread of Life at (781) 397-0404.
Meals will be delivered between 11:30am and 1:30pm.
If you would like to volunteer to deliver meals or to help package food and clean up, please call Bread of Life at (781)397-0404.
