“We identified a need and so many people pulled together to solve a problem,” said Fisher, “When we started working with Lighthouse Mission, all the food for the day was cooked in one pot on a hot plate.”

A hot dinner will be provided to patrons on December 6 and 7 through Project Echo’s Sam’s Christmas initiative.
