Christmas Eve dinner planned for Nelson

Our Daily Bread and Kootenay Christian Fellowship are once again hosting a community wide Christmas Eve dinner.

Our Daily Bread and Kootenay Christian Fellowship are once again hosting a community wide Christmas Eve dinner. This dinner is open to anyone who would like to attend and will be held at 5 p.m. at 812 Stanley Street. All guests will receive a first class dinner in a pleasant and homey atmosphere, plus a wrapped Christmas gift.

Our Daily Bread is aware that there are some who do not experience the family environment that the Christmas season promotes. For some, family members may have passed away or there may be extenuating circumstances where they are unable to make a journey to their family. At Kootenay Christian Fellowship and Our Daily Bread, they desire to create that family experience.

During the Christmas season they receive the majority of our support to operate Our Daily Bread. Last year during this time, the community gave $23,000 in addition to the many in-kind donations.  We greatly appreciate individuals and business for supporting this vital service within our community. Without this support they could not operate.

To host their Christmas dinner it costs approximately $4 per plate. Any donations received above the cost of the Christmas Eve dinner will go to providing meals throughout the next year. Our Daily Bread provides hot meals five days a week and other vital services to the working poor, those looking for work, the homeless, and the families that are less fortunate. Your donation helps us to provide nourishment and care, personal support and spiritual help that can be the start of a new life for their guests.

If you would like to donate to the Christmas Eve dinner, send a cheque to Our Daily Bread, 812 Stanley Street, Nelson, BC, V1L 1N7 or donate online at kootenaychristianfellowship.com. If you have any further questions, or would like to volunteer for the dinner please feel free to call 352-7700.
