St. Luke’s Episcopal Church of Prescott will be hosting the 38th annual “Don’t Spend Christmas Alone” community dinner from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Christmas Day.
“Don’t Spend Christmas Alone” will provide a full no cost home-cooked Christmas dinner and fellowship for everyone in the quad-city area who may be alone or feel alone on this day. Along with a homemade meal, guests can enjoy Christmas carols and even a visit from Santa. Volunteers will visit the homebound and deliver a free meal, so they too may feel a part of the community celebration.
Last year more than 850 people were served — some who attended were new to the community, others could not be with family members for various reasons, some have no home, and some were just looking for companionship on that day. All are welcome.
The opportunity to volunteer for “Don’t Spend Christmas Alone” will be opened to the community. The event relies heavily on the time and talent of volunteers. Volunteers must be 13 or older and will be scheduled on a first come, first served basis. Please look for volunteer information later in November.
The church is located at 2000 Shepherds Lane, one block north of the airport entrance on the corner of Highway 89 and Ruger Road in Prescott.
