Holiday Season at Sharing Hands starts the first of October when our Food Bank begins receiving applications from low income families and seniors for Christmas Dinners and presents.
In December information about the children and the seniors is hung on the "Givng Trees" for shoppers to use when purchasing the presents that are distributed with the dinners.
The Food Bank staff and volunteers also start gathering food items for the Christmas Dinners and coordinate presents to ensure that there will be enough for every family.
It all comes together the week before Christmas when over 150 families and their chilren, plus about 75 seniors pick up their dinners and presents.
All of the funding for Christmas Greeters comes from the Central Linn community.
