Christmas Comes to Charlie’s Place

Santa was the honored guest, along with over 80 clients, at our annual Charlie’s Place Christmas Dinner. Chef Vinny Shephard supervised volunteers from St. Margaret’s Church and the neighborhood in preparing and serving roast turkey and ham, all manner of sides as well as mountains of home made desserts, all donated by kind friends.

After dinner, Santa distributed individual Charlie’s Place sacks, filled with goodies both practical and festive, to each client. Many thanks go to Amy and Laurence Rubrel for overseeing the gift project and to many at St. Margaret’s and in the neighborhood who contributed to making the holidays brighter for our clients.
