Help needed for Gary Christmas dinner

GARY — Volunteers are still needed for the “Spirit of Christmas” dinner from 1 to 4 p.m. Wednesday at Ivy Tech’s Gary campus, 1440 E. 35th Ave.

State Rep. Vernon Smith, of Gary, began the free dinner in 1987.

“As a result of that success, we have a need for more volunteers.

In particular, we need help with set-up and clean-up,” Smith said.

Cooks will begin work at 8 a.m. Saturday. Volunteers are also needed to decorate the room at Ivy Tech.

Transportation is available to the dinner. For information or to volunteer, contact Smith at 887-2046.
