Christmas is a special time of the year for everyone but it also brings a lot of challenges for many families and the homeless. Bringing hope and joy to the lives of those in difficult circumstances is one of our main goals at EOS and this is one of the ways we strive to do so!
The EOS annual Christmas dinner is an annual highlight! Families in need that are connected to our SuperKids and BBQ outreach programs come together to celebrate the joy of Christmas with a traditional hot turkey meal and gifts.
We always need volunteers to come and help us with our programs while building relationships, and the Christmas dinner is a fun and easy way to get involved. The best part about an Extreme Christmas Dinner is that we all work together to pull it off!
Here is a list of what we need:
- 100 Volunteers (this fills up fast so don’t wait to sign up!)
- 40 Turkeys
- Potatoes and veggies
- 50 bouquets of flowers
- 20 trays of stuffing
- 25 new bikes
- 500 children’s gifts
- 150 soccer balls, volleyballs, or basketballs
- 1000 stockings
- 1000 pairs of gloves, toques and scarves
- Financial donations to help ensure no one is overlooked
