A full Christmas day spread for the downtown eastside’s most vulnerable.
Put on by the Salvation Army’s Harbour Light location and over 100 volunteers, the organization dished out nearly 1500 meals today.
Director of Operations, Grant Gayman, says it’s the only Christmas celebration many who attended will get.
A traditional holiday dinner was served.
“We have turkey, stuffing, some vegetables, cranberry sauce, gravy of course, and there’s some apple for for dessert. Juice and coffee”.
Gayman says attendees also received a gift bag.
“We’ve got some socks, some chocolates, a few toiletries”.
Gayman says volunteers made it as festive as possible with holiday music and big smiles.
