Salvation Army hosts annual older adult Christmas luncheon
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- The Salvation Army hosted its annual older adult Christmas luncheon on Wednesday, Dec. 4.
Some older adults may not have family in the immediate area, so this is one way for them to have a Christmas celebration and enjoy a wonderful meal at this time of year.
There they had the opportunity to visit with friends, enjoy a wonderful meal and listen to a special Christmas message.
"This is truly priceless for us to know that we can give back just a little bit and connect with somebody," said Major Steven Woodard of the Salvation Army. "To see that smile on their face...to make them laugh...to get a hug....that's why we do it."
Those who attended were encouraged to donate two non-perishable food items.
The food collected will be donated to area food pantries.
