Very best of all, your family can volunteer to serve a meal at the Salvation Army on Christmas Day.  Volunteers are still needed to prepare and serve dinner.  Call 502-625-1173.  (Note:  I called the Salvation Army to arrange my children and I going there for Christmas to volunteer.  They said they do have a lot of volunteers on the holidays and that they really need volunteers everyday.  So, please keep that in mind as well)
