GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (KSNB) - Saint Paul’s Lutheran Church put on a meal for those in the community, who may not have people to celebrate with this Christmas.

The church hosted their 24th annual Christmas dinner in Grand Island earlier today. The dinner included turkey, ham, and all the traditional sides included in Christmas meals.

Desserts like pumpkin pie were also available for those who wanted it. According to organizers the event could feed as many as a thousand people throughout the day.

They said the Christmas day dinner was partially sidelined last year due to COVID-19.

“Last year of course we just served the meals on wheels people and law enforcement and the fire department. Because of COVID we couldn’t meet together as a family,” event volunteer Carolyn Lees said.

Santa Claus also made an appearance at the dinner. The meal was provided through donations from businesses and the community.
