Help Needed Serving Christmas Dinner to Broome County Residents
One of my greatest childhood Christmas memories is when as a family, we’d load up the car with Christmas dinners and deliver them to people who otherwise wouldn’t have a special meal, or when we’d help serve up Christmas dinner to those who couldn’t afford to make a meal of their own.
Maybe you’re looking to start a tradition of giving back to the world around us with your kids? If so, you’ll want to get in touch with Bill Bandera by calling 607-231-0706, or filling out the volunteer form. If you aren’t able to help on Christmas day, you can always make a much much-appreciated donation.
Since 1989, the Bandera family has been serving meals to our community on Christmas day. What started out as 69 meals now exceeds 3,000 meals (including 1,200 deliveries) and the Bandera family could really use some help from volunteers to serve dinner.
The Bandera family has expanded their free dinner, which means they need even more helping hands. Dinner is served at The American Legion, Post 80 and also at The Boys And Girls Club in Endicott. The Bandera family also has buffet lines and community gatherings for our seniors in buildings 110 Chenango , Woodburn Court, #1 and Lincoln Senior Building.
