Single Moms Christmas Dinner Volunteer



"I had just recently become a single parent of three young girls and I didn’t have support. I went to the Christmas Dinner and I still remember when I first walked in, somebody helped me to my seat and I immediately felt relief and acceptance. People look at you differently when you’re a single mom, they treat you differently. But when I walked in there, I felt loved, I felt supported and I was blown away that something like that even existed at all." 


The Single Moms Christmas Dinner is only possible because of the hearts and hands of hundreds of individuals working together to create a special night for the thousands of women and children who attend.
