Christmas Dinner for the Homeless

CHRISTMAS DINNER FOR THE HOMELESS 2021

This Christmas, please help us to provide SLO County's Homeless population and local residents struggling with hunger with a decadent meal and much needed winter clothing care packages. This year, we will distribute 'TO GO' meals and care packages at the Odd Fellow's Hall for both walk-up and drive-through guests. Additionally, pre-packaged meals will be distributed at 40 Prado Homeless Services Center and at pre-determined locations throughout SLO County. The safety of our guests and workers is our top priority. Last year, we safely provided 600 meals. As an unprecedented number of local families are struggling more than ever this year, we are in tremendous need of large quantities of cooked food and monetary donations to purchase care package contents. Please sign-up below and/or donate through the United Way SLO website: www.unitedwayslo.org/civicrm/contribute/transact?reset=1&id=4  on the 'Care Packages for Christmas' page. Please call (805-594-1999) or email ([email protected]) Sheri Eibschutz with any questions.

Date: 12/25/2021 (Sat.)

Time: 11:00am - 6:30pm PDT

Location: Odd Fellow's Hall at 520 Dana St. in downtown SLO. Doors/drive-through will be open to the community between 3 and 5:30pm!! All volunteers must wear face mask!
