A Christmas Eve Brunch will be served to those in need, hosted by Salvation Army. The brunch will take place on Saturday, Dec. 24 from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. at the Chattanooga Salvation Army ReCreate Cafe, 800 McCallie Ave.
Those in need are invited to gather in the ReCreate Cafe to enjoy a meal in celebration of Christmas. An array of brunch food will be served, along with coffee and other hot drinks.
The Christmas Eve Brunch is made possible by donations made to Salvation Army. "The donations made to The Salvation Army are what make this brunch possible, allowing those in need to eat for free," organizers said.
The brunch will include an array of different breakfast and lunch foods, as well as coffee and other hot drinks. “We are able to not only provide warmth and shelter to many of those in need in our community, but also allow them a chance to celebrate the holidays like everyone else,” said Kimberly George, director of Marketing and Development at Salvation Army. “The donations made by the community allow us to reach our goal of helping those who need it most.”
The Salvation Army will also distribute new back packs filled by the community with special gifts to all guests who attend the brunch.
"With the holidays around the corner, it’s the time of year when people in the community want to give back. The Salvation Army may best be known for the bell ringers, who invite adults and children alike to donate even small change to give back to the organization. Those who donate may not realize the impact their contribution, however, without their donations, events like this would not be possible," officials said.
