Jesus is the reason for the season! There can be a number of reasons why Christmas is one of the hardest times of the year. Some of the issues our guest face are: hunger, homelessness, depression, loss of a loved one, loneliness, separation from family and/or friends and financial distress because of the Holiday season. We serve all economic and social groups in the Valley with a hot meal and warm and loving atmosphere.
Why do we do this?
We are a non-profit organization filled with volunteers who want to make a difference in our community.
Who are we?
The Christmas Friendship Dinner started in the early 1990’s when Bob Bowers was asked to prepare a Christmas Dinner at the Senior Center. Over the years we have out grown several locations and now prepare a Christmas Dinner at the Menard Sports Complex for around 4000 people. The Dinner now has become a tradition for many members of this community both as a guest and as one of the 500 volunteers who come to serve their community.
