Harvest Outreach Ministries Sponsors Free Christmas Dinner For Those In Need Dec. 22

Thursday, December 13, 2018
Harvest Outreach Ministries will host their annual Christmas dinner to feed the homeless and less fortunate in the Dalton area, as well as anyone else that would like to enjoy a free meal, on Saturday, Dec. 22 from noon-5 p.m. at the American Legion, 1118 North Glenwood Ave in Dalton.  

"There will be plenty of food and some wonderful Gospel and Christmas music," organizers said.  Scheduled to sing are His Call Gospel Singers, Clarence JR Garrett, Linda Odom, Renee Barton, Shelia Reed, Skeeter Hindman, Spirit Filled, Darlene Tackett, Redeeming Grace, All For Him and Kim Goins Phillips.

"This traditional Christmas dinner has been in existence for about 32 years with this ministry," organizers said.  "We started feeding hot meals to the homeless and secured a kitchen that was set up like a restaurant.  As time moved along, we began enlarging our work to an open community kitchen, letting anyone come and eat.  In this, we found so many that were going hungry in and around our doorsteps that we could not ignore this great need.  So Harvest Outreach was birthed.  We now hold these free dinners each Thanksgiving Day and on the Saturday before Christmas.  We welcome all donations and really appreciate all the volunteers that come out to help us each year.

"This is a free event and we welcome all to come and share good food, fellowship and wonderful music with us."
