SoupMobile has made a good Christmas possible for hundreds of homeless persons in Dallas, according to Fox on Thursday.

Calling the event “Room at the Inn,” SoupMobile – which is a non-profit mobile soup kitchen that shelters and feeds homeless people – is hosting approximately 500 homeless people in the area. The guests received some new clothes, a banquet that was held in their honor on Tuesday, and a room to sleep in on Christmas Eve. It took about 1,000 volunteers to make this event a reality for the local homeless.

In anticipation of the event, the program’s director Lon Ricker said to just imagine when those doors open and the homeless friends look out. He says that they would think that it’s Christmas and all these people came out for us. He says it gives the homeless hope.

SoupMobile, a faith-based group, reportedly serves over 200,000 meals annually and also has eight group homes to shelter the homeless.
