The Salvation Army Ottawa Booth Centre hosted a Community Christmas Dinner Saturday for 500 guests at 171 George Street.
The dinner had 6 sittings on the hour from noon until 5:00 pm and before each meal there was Christmas music performed by the Circle of Blessing band.
The Community Christmas dinner consisted of a warm turkey dinner in a welcoming festive atmosphere for the homeless, the hungry and the lonely. Anyone in need of a meal or some company was welcomed.
“Thank you to the community for helping us provide this festive meal every year through your generous donations and by volunteering your time,” said Marc Provost, Ottawa Booth Centre Executive Director. “Our holiday meal provides a warm and welcoming place for everyone to celebrate together.”
The Ottawa Booth Centre served over 200,000 meals in 2017. Donations made to The Christmas Kettle Campaign support our community meal line and special holiday meals.
