We’re happy to let you know that we’re on track for a successful program this year. This year, as was the case last year, the uncertainties of COVID-19 forced us to re-think our plans. But, rather than canceling our Christmas Day event, we have worked with ally churches, other groups, and health officials, to plan an event that will provide masks, maintain social distancing, and practice other safety measures for the protection of all our guests and volunteers. It will be very different, but we will preserve the spirit and 35-year commitment to our neighbors in need.
Because we can’t safely accommodate guests in the church and we can’t assure volunteer-made meals are safe, we’ll have three, licensed, professionally-run food trucks preparing full meals in the church parking lot.
We will seat our guests in our heated circus tent--taking all due precautions for a safe gathering. And serve our guests after they are seated in the tent.
We have made plans to offer toys and gifts and toiletries distributed in the First Congregational Church.
