The gathering of volunteers is needed at 12 noon on Dec. 24. The volunteers will be assembling boxes, setting up the tables needed, packing desert cake for the meals and setting out signs, registration, information and supplies. All of the preparation and actual assembling of the Christmas dinners will be done at the Oak Grove Church located at 603 Madison St. The many volunteers will reassemble on Christmas Day at 8:30 a.m. to start the assembly of the 700-plus meals. There will be a need for over 80 volunteer’s to make this project of love conducted by the caring, loving men women and children that will be helping.
