The Sixth Annual Chillicothe Community Christmas Dinner will be held via drive-through and delivery due to the pandemic. Pick up at the Calvary Baptist Church at 206 Locust Street in Chillicothe will be Christmas Day from 11 to 1 o’clock. Anyone can pick up meals, but deliveries are limited to Chillicothe.
Christmas Dinner Committee Member Sharon Brooks says volunteers are needed to make deliveries, fill to-go boxes, and packaging meals for the drive-through and delivery. Anyone who wants to volunteer should arrive at 10:30.
Brooks explains the dinner was started six years ago and intended to reach out to those who could not get a traditional meal on Christmas due to restaurants closing, family out of state, or no family.
The meal is free to anyone, and it will not be served based on need. Monetary donations may be made at the Citizens Bank in Chillicothe to go toward future Christmas dinners. The Chillicothe Community Christmas Dinner is a 501(c)(3), so receipts can be sent for tax purposes.
Contact Sharon Brooks to order delivery or for more information at 660-707-1040.
