Since Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve fall on Thursdays this year, we are serving on the Wednesdays prior instead. The main group that serves on Wednesday is a group of students from Haverford College, so they will not be serving those nights to be home for the holidays.
There are groups and individuals who give away food on the street only on the holidays, so no one should go hungry.
It has long been my conviction that the main cause of homelessness is families dis-integrating. So we will be of little use to serve ‘others’ if we do not take care for our own families, and they for us.
