About 700 guests at Siloam Mission will enjoy a full course Christmas Eve dinner this afternoon, complete with all the trimmings, decorated tables, and gifts for them to enjoy as they leave.
The downtown homeless shelter will feed the city’s less fortunate as part of its annual tradition. The Christmas Eve gathering is the second-highest for attendance at Siloam, next to Thanksgiving.
Staff and volunteers will serve up the feast between 12 p.m. and 2 p.m.
